The children have been enjoying the following Books of the Bible video…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7ZtWRSCH7E As with most things on the internet, please make sure you view the video with your child, as sometimes the advertising may not be age appropriate.
Your child should also continue to practice basic math facts on xtramath.org. If you have lost the signup sheet, please let me know and I will get you another.
Last week in Science we ended up focusing on bridges. Using just two pieces of paper, the children worked collaborately with partners and created their own bridges that could hold over 75 pennies. I am so proud of their work.
In ELA, we are primarily going to be working with StoryWorks, Jr. We will be reading and analyzing the magazine articles. Towards the end of the week, we will begin reading and discussing Roberto Clemente. In grammar, we are working on writing plural nouns correctly. Our spelling words are slight, mild, sight, pie, mind, tie, pilot, might, lie, tight, blind, fight, die, midnight, find, night, silent, and frightening. We are not having any ELA tests this week.
In Social Studies, we are learning about the different hemispheres and the prime meridian.
