Reading/Phonics: We will read 2 stories this week that are fantasy. We will discuss realistic/unrealistic fears. We will compare/contrast fantasy stories with realistic fiction. We will work on retelling the story with illustrations first, then adding the text. In phonics, we will review the goo and the foot cards.
Writing Workshop: We worked on the 3 kinds of sentences and how to use correct punctuation. We will also work on using complete sentences to answer some comprehension questions about our story, Strange Bumps.
Religion: We will honor Mary, our Holy Queen. We will discuss how Mary helps us to be good Christians and how the church honors Mary.
Math: We worked with equal parts on Friday using “real candy bars”. I loved the look on their faces! We will continue with our fractions unit this week. We will work with whole, halves, and fourths. We will end the chapter with our test on Thursday, and then begin our last chapter on 3 dimensional shapes.
Science: We are back working in our daily science books. We have been learning about matter and its forms.
