This week in religion class, we finished talking about Confirmation. Next week, we will discuss the Church Year and Ordinary Time. After that, we begin our months long preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
In Language, we introduced adjectives. So now the class can classify the subject noun, verb, adverbs, and adjectives, with article adjectives coming up on Tuesday. We’ve moved on from short vowel sounds to long vowels in Phonics. We also started our first paper, an opinion piece. The class is writing about what they think I should be for Halloween, giving me 3 reason to support their opinion. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
We took our chapter 2 test in Math and solved our first Math Mystery. Next we move on to basic addition facts. Please practice some basic facts, 0 – 10, every day. So maybe at a red light, you review basic addition facts for 2. Perhaps during dinner prep, you say the 3 and 5 facts. Do you walk to school? See how many your child can say in all.
There was so much to learn in Social Studies. We learned about different types of communities (urban, suburb, rural) and talked about states, borders and state capitals. Next week, we will do a few activities to help remember all the things that we have learned.
