WEEK OF FEB. 19
As usual, the days continue to fly by. There is still a lot to accomplish with only three months to get it all in.
RELIGION - We are learning how to live the first commandment and realizing God is very important in our lives. We are also learning about the different kinds of prayer and how God is the focal point in any prayer we pray or write.
LANGUAGE ARTS - We are still enjoying the adventures of Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant. Once we get started, the students want to keep reading to find what is going to happen next. The author Roald Dahl has a way of keeping children engaged and interested in reading. The spelling list includes words that have suffixes. They are certainly ones that need to be studied. There will not be a prompt this week, due to the fact that we are still working on our travel poster
to show adventurous activities in our Southeast states. We have combined our word of the week and our social studies curriculum.
MATH - We've been learning to measure angles with a protractor. The skill is tricky, but most are beginning to get the hang of it. We will also learn to add a sales tax to a purchase, as well as work with decimals to the thousandths place value this week.
