Friday News for the Week of May 30-June 2

Happy Friday! Only one more week of school! :)

We had another fabulous week in 1st grade today!

Writing: We finished up our Animal Research writings this week and they look fabulous! The students worked really hard with reading the research, compiling it, organizing it, and then finally writing it using indentation and paragraphs! Wow! Next week we’ll present the animals research to each other!

Math: We finished up ALL of our math today! The students brought the finished workbook home today. We also took a Chapter 1-10 test and the students did really great! I’m so proud of them!

Bible: We learned the story about the Israelites returning to Israel after 70 years. King Cyrus allowed them to return to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. Some Jews stayed in Babylon, but some went back to help rebuild. Today we learned about Ezra who fasted and prayed for the people of Israel to turn back to God. Next week we’ll learn about Nehemiah rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem!

Science: We are starting to learn about the human body this week and next week! We are going to learn 6 systems of the body: Respiratory, Circulatory, Digestive, Nervous, Skeletal, and Muscular.

Fun Friday:

Next Week:
No Spelling Words and no Bible Memory Verse

There WILL be homework though! :)

Friday - June 9th THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!
School will be dismissed at 12:30
