Friday News for the Week of September 25-29

We had a great field trip at Toguchi Beach today!

Here’s some pictures:

This week:
Reading - Our strategy was “Cross Checking.” That means to cross the pictures with the words to ask Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?” It’s a very important strategy for readers to be able to do! We read a few books and ended with Pete the Cat goes to the Beach - perfect for our field trip today!

Math: We finished up Chapter 1 which was all about addition strategies to 10. We learned how to make the sum of 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. We even learned interesting things like true and false addition sentences, we learned how to read and understand addition number stories and so much more. The students rocked their math test today!

Writing: This week we thought of good opening sentences for our stories instead of always using “One day.” The students thought of some really good ones! We also learned that good writers spell their spelling words correctly and know how to make sentences instead of letting their stories go on with …. and…. and… and :)

Bible: We finished up the Bible unit about Abraham. It’s amazing to see how God kept his promises through Abraham’s life - by giving him a son and blessing the whole world through Abraham’s family.

Science - We finished up learning about our Solar System! We learned about each of the planets that go around the sun and the place we call our community! Next we’ll be zooming in a little bit to look at the earth we live on, our continent, our country, our city, and our neighborhood!
