“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” This was a verse we focused on this week in our Bible journals. We talked about how we can serve the Lord and have chosen 3 ways next week: helping students pick up fallen items when our supply boxes fall to the ground (it just keeps happening! :), picking up paper towels in the bathrooms, and picking up trash around our campus. The students are excited to find new ways to serve our Lord!
*We went to the library for the first time today so your child might have two library books in his/her bookbag. We will have library every Friday.
*AR Goals and STAR test results went home today. I have told the students they can bring home any book they borrow from my classroom library; they just need to bring it back and forth. Please feel free to email/call me if you have questions or concerns about AR or the STAR test.
Here is what we will be working on next week:
Social Skills: We will be talking about how to work through conflict. I have introduced the “I statement” as a way to help start a conversation between students when conflict occurs.
Reading: We will work on using a new comprehension strategy, Check for Understanding. We are also continuing to look at how to use text (fiction and non-fiction) to answer questions. We will also work on using predictions to figure out what a text is about.
English: We will identify and create simple and compound sentences.
Religion: We will continue to create new Bible Journal pages, using special verses from the Bible.
Memory Work: If your child would like to say the rest of the Old Testament books next week, that is an option, not required.
Math: We will be writing the Date Using Digits, dividing Squares into 2,4, and 8 parts, reading a thermometer to the nearest 10 degrees, and rounding numbers to the nearest 10.
Social Studies: This week our class will be doing S.S. with Miss Bevirt! They will start with Chapter 1, Where in the World is our Community? This unit will take about 2-3 weeks and then it will be back to Science.
I was terrible about taking pictures this week so I will be more diligent next week! Thanks for understanding! Have a great 3 day weekend!
