We are getting into the swing of things rather well. The class has learned the rules, expectations and routines. They also worked very hard this week on the iReady diagnostics. What troopers!!
This week, we spoke about what is a disciple and listed ways that we can all be a disciple of Jesus. We distinguished between Apostles and disciples. In addition, we talked about the wonderful story of Pentecost.
In Language, we’ve finished our chapter about the rules for capitalization and punctuation. However, these will be used throughout the year, so as to really familiarize ourselves with them. Phonics has now moved on to short vowel sounds. We’ll be working with these throughout next week as well.
We finished our first math test. Those will go home next week. Chapter 2 focuses on numbers to 1,000. On Fridays, we will often (but not always) work on our iReady My Path lessons. There will be times that we do some fun different things too, like solving a Math Mystery based on clues that we receive.
In Science, we will start to talk about technology in our world and the design process. We’ll cover how technology isn’t just tablets and computers but anything made to meet needs and solve problems, like a toothbrush or pump in a soap bottle.
