In Religion, we learned that there is a Church Year, with different seasons. We talked about each season of the Church Year and how there are different colors to represent them. We took a very close look at the season of Ordinary Time.
In Language, we introduced article adjectives. So now the class can classify the subject noun, verb, adverbs, adjectives, and article adjectives. Continue to learn long vowels in Phonics. During Reading this week, we read a wonderful story called “The House on Maple Street”, looking carefully at the setting and how it changes. We also looked at the sequence of events in our story. We’ll finish this story next week.
We’ve begun our study of basic addition facts and different strategies that can be used to add. Next week, we continue and will look more closely at basic subtraction facts. Please practice basic facts daily, even if it is just a couple of minutes. The repetition will help with the automaticity of answers.
We’ve finished up Unit 1 in Social Studies. Our test will be next Tuesday, October 20. A multi-page packet went home yesterday, while the text was sent home Wednesday. Please use both pieces to study for the test. We will have more review as a whole group next week too.
