Reading - We thought about Mental Image. Mental Image is the ability to see a picture in your brain. This week we read some picture books with very descriptive words and we tried to see a picture in our brains. On Friday we read a really funny poem but we stopped half way and drew the picture we saw so far. Then we finished the poem and we were all surprised!!
Math: We are zooming through subtraction strategies. This week we learned fact family and related facts. It’s so interesting that numbers have a family too! Next week we’ll finish this chapter and get into Place Value.
Writing: We are developing our opinion writing. This week we looked at an example first graders work and we used a checklist to see how they were doing. Then the students pulled out their own writing and fixed it up and made it even better!
Science - We are continuing to learn about sound!
Bible: We finished up the unit on Joshua and learned how the Israelites conquered Canaan. God was with their every step of the way and gave them amazing victories!
Spelling Words: be me we see seed feel meat meet weak week come other
Bible Memory Verse: “I love you, O Lord, my strength.” Psalm 18:1
