Friday News for the Week of September 5-8

Happy Friday!

This week:

Reading: We continued to build stamina in Read to Self. We made it up to 15 minutes - twice! I think next week we’ll make it up to 20 minutes! We also focused on learning about Titles of a book. Titles are the name of the book. We learned that sometimes they are all capital letters, or just the first words are capital. Today we looked in our reading folder to see the titles of the books the students picked and we wrote them down.

Math: We started Chapter 1 with learning about addition number sentences. The students all did GREAT! I think we’ll have a super fun year with math!

Bible: We learned about Adam and Eve and what happened to them in the Garden of Eden. Everything was perfect, but Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating the fruit from the tree that God told them not to eat. That is how sin entered the world. But God made a very amazing promise to Adam that someday he would send someone to save everyone - we know that person is Jesus!

Writing: We learned that good writers write from left to right, top to bottom, write about one idea, and underline the words they don’t know.

This week we went to the computer lab and learned how to play Spelling City games and ConnectED My Math game - Fact Dash

Science: We are learning about the Solar System!

Next Week:
Spelling Words: job, God, mom, hop, top, got, not, fox, a, and
Bible Memory Verse: “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11
