Friday News for the week of Nov 27-Dec 1

Happy Friday and 1st day of December!

This Week:

Reading: We have been learning about the sequence of a story. Stories have to be read in the right order or they don’t make sense! We learned some key words such as, “first, next, then, finally” to help tell the story. We read Mercer Mayer stories all week to help us out with the sequence of a story.
Today, I gave students a cut up story and they had to put it in the right order.

Math: We finished Chapter 3 with strategies to help us with adding numbers to 20. The students all worked super hard to use the different strategies.

Writing: We continuing to work through How to teaching books! I’m so proud of all of the students! We will edit and publish one of the books in the next few weeks.

Bible: This week we learned about the 10 Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai. Those are good rules for everyone to live by! We also learned about the building of the Tabernacle. God had Moses send 12 men to spy out there new home Canaan, but 10 came back and said that the people there were scary and that they would lose if they went to conquer the place. 2 of them came back to say, “God can help us fight!” Because of the grumbling of the Israelites, God banned them from going in to their Promised Land for 40 years. Even Moses himself, disobeyed God and he wouldn’t be allowed to go home to Canaan. Wow! When God speaks, it’s best to obey EVERYTHING he says! Next week we’ll learn about the Christmas story!
