Friday News for the Week of May 14-18

Happy Friday!!

We had a fantastic day yesterday at the zoo!! We had great weather walking around the zoo and exploring in the Wonder Museum. Thanks to all the parents who came out!

Here are some pictures:

This Week:
Reading - Author’s Purpose - Why do authors write books? We learned that it’s mostly for 3 reasons: to persuade, to inform, or to entertain. We read some fun books where the author tried to persuade us or change our mind, as well as to teach us something. Most books we read in 1st grade are simply entertaining books.

Math - We learned about composite shapes this week. It was fun to try to figure out what different shapes we can make with the shapes we have.

Writing - We started our animal research papers. We read though some books and online materials about our animals and highlighted diet, habitat, description, and fun facts.

Bible - We learned about Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Babylon. God did amazing things through their lives as they stood strong and continued to worship God. God saved them from a fiery furnace and a lions den. Each time the king proclaimed “Wow! The God you serve is amazing! Let’s all worship Him!!” Let’s strive to live like Daniel in our world today too.

Today we stopped by the 3rd grade Book Fair!

Next Week:
Spelling Words(Review): what, when, where, who, then, this, there, their, than, they chore, far, more, hard, dirt, first, turn, girl, verse, her
