Thursday, 10/24 is our field trip to Peggy Notebart Nature Museum. I will let you know how it goes in next week’s blog post!
In phonics, we have been focused on homophones: words that are said the same but have a different spelling and different meaning. We kicked it off learning some jokes. Students have enjoyed working with homophones and have started noticing them more during reading time. We are still working on troublemakers too, which are linked below.
Writing and reading has still been focused in nonfiction. We are reading more nonfiction books, scooping up those keywords to become experts on the topic ourselves and to read smoothly. We are focused on using the lingo. We are reading books across topics to put the knowledge together to know more. In writing, we are finishing up our all about books and trying our hand at how to books too. We will be finished up with our nonfiction focus in two weeks.
In math we wrapped up Unit 2 and are switching into Unit 3. We will be working more on subtraction and learning fact family triangles. We are now using our doubles and making 10 strategies to notice bigger teen numbers too.
Religion has been about forgiveness and celebrating God’s forgiveness this week. We are talking about Penance and Reconciliation.
We are wrapping up our What is a Community? unit in social studies. We will have a test on Friday, 10/25.
