We had another wonderful albeit short week!
In the Silver Knights this week we read some chapters from the book Judy Moody Saves the World. In it Judy gets a little overly zealous about recycling after learning from her teacher about all the products we use in our every day life that comes from the rain forest. Ask your child all about it! It was fun story, with a lot of humor, and a good reminder to us all about the importance of recycling. We reviewed adjectives this week as descriptive words that can express size, length, quantity, color, and feeling. We practiced this skill by describing a stuffed animal that I had placed on their desk and then sharing two of the animals attributes to the class. We also worked on writing facts and opinions this week and differentiating between them both.
In math we continued practicing identifying equivalent fractions with the help of fraction bar lines. I will be sending home a bar line sheet and projector paper to practice this skill at home just to get a little extra practice with it. If they can explain it and teach it to you, then they can bring it back and we’ll be moving on to area of known and unknown dimensions.
In religion this week we reviewed the 10 Commandments and the Golden Rule. We talked about how Jesus gave us the New Commandment which was to love one another as I have loved you. We also went on a Bible search for the Beatitudes and completed a fill in the blank of what each meant. This week, the students will be leading Thursday Mass. We would love to see you there!
We didn’t get to social studies this week with the shortened week, snow day, and shifting of specials but we will be moving on to learning about the early European explorers: who they were, who sponsored them, and their achievements. I know they will be learning a lot of new information these next two weeks!
Have a wonderful week,
