What Are We Learning?
Religion: This week we are on Chapter 14 in our Religion books. We will be discussing how Jesus showed compassion for the suffering. The children will hear of the many miracles that Jesus performed. We will also discuss how people today care for the suffering. The chapter test will be next Tuesday.
Math: This week we will complete Chapter 5: Place Value to 100. We will review on Tuesday and the chapter test will be on Wednesday. Make sure your child can count by 2's and 5's forward and backwards. Our next chapter will be Chapter 4 and we will be working with Venn Diagrams and tally charts. This week we will begin subtraction facts with our fast math tests. Remember to continue practicing memorizing math facts. Use flash cards!!! You can make them or buy them anywhere. There are also many apps and websites to use that encourage memorization of facts!!
Reading/Language Arts: This week we will continue Unit 3 Week 3 on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Reading and Spelling tests will be on Wednesday with the Spelling pretest on Tuesday. We will then begin Unit 3 Week 4 the following Monday. The children should be able to read the vocabulary words on Row 3 and 4. The Spelling/Phonics skills are reading and writing words with soft c and soft g sounds. We will also review adding -ed and -ing to verbs for past and present tense. Our comprehension skill is identifying cause and effect. The Grammar skill is identifying past and future-tense verbs in a sentence. There will be a grammar test this week on verbs. On Thursday and Friday, the children will choose an animal and will be learning how to research facts and write an informative essay. I will be sending home a paper each Monday that will let you know the objectives for the week. Your child also received a card with their user name and password to go onto the Wonders Reading Program's website. I have assignments on there where your child can read the stories we are working on each week. There are also games and activities that reinforce the skills we are working on in class.
