Christian Faith:

This week we will learn that God protected Daniel from lions while the Jews were captive in Babylon.  After 70 years in captivity, God allowed them to return to the land promised to Abraham many years before.  Ever since Adam and Eve sinned God gave his prophets hints about his plan for salvation through his Son Jesus.  We will look at a few of these prophecies.  Memory work due this Friday is:  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.  Isaiah 9:6


Students will read the short story “The Gum Trap” on Monday, Let’s Camp Out on Tuesday and Wednesday, and their own book on Thursday.  This week’s sight words include all of the sight words in book 3.  The unit test will be at the end of the week.

Two-Can Tuesday is December 11.


Students will review the er the /er/ of her on Monday with the following spelling words:  her, over, under, were.  Tuesday’s words have the ee-double ee always says e phonogram – see, week, green, three.  Students will learn the first sound of the ea phonogram on Wednesday – read, tea, eat, and east Thursday’s words have the second sound of the ea phonogram – head, bread, dead, read.


In math we will practice the minus 2 facts, learn to draw line segments with a ruler, and use dimes and pennies to add double digits numbers without regrouping.  Thank you for all the recyclable items which we will use in our store.
