Friday News for the Week of March 5-9

Happy Friday!

Reading: Our focus was “Fairy Tales.” These stories are super fun to read!

This week we read, Rumpelstiltskin, Jack and the Beanstalk,
Hansel and Gretal, and Rapunzel. We tried to look for
common themes throughout all Fairy Tales including a good
opening (Once upon a time…) a good ending (and they all
lived happily ever after), royalty (kings, princesses),
love, magic, good characters, bad characters, and special
numbers or repeated phrases. Some Fairy Tales have all of
those and others only have some of them. The students
enjoyed all the stories that we read! Next week we’ll
continue with some other common Folk Tales.

Writing - We were learning about letter writing and writing
opinions. We will continue that next week.

We also did some spelling review and here is a picture
of the students working together to solve spelling riddles.

Math - We finished Chapter 6 with a test today! Double digit
addition seems scary at first, but all the students tried
their best and finished strong. Next week we’ll start
learning about graphs!

Bible: We continued to learn about David being chased
by King Saul. David and Saul’s son, Jonathan, became best
friends and Jonathan helped David escape. David even ran
to hide in the Philistine territory because he knew Saul
wouldn’t come there to look for him. One time David was
in the back of the cave, and Saul went into the cave to
rest. David crept up to Saul and cut off a piece of his
robe to show Saul that he doesn’t want to hurt him even
though he could have. Saul realized how wrong it was for
him to chase David, but soon Saul went right back to
chasing him. Next week we’ll finish the story of Saul
and move on to David as king!
