Friday News - Oct. 20

Happy Friday!

Here's a few things we've been learning this week...

In Math we are wrapping up our chapter of Understanding Multiplication (test next week). We've looked at how multiplication is like repeated addition, arrays, equal groups and how we can use multiplication to find combinations. The students seem to be catching onto multiplication very quickly!! 

In Reading we looked at the strategy of Making Predictions. We can make predictions before we read, during our reading, and after we read. 

In Writing we are continuing to work on writing personal narratives. We talked about how to add detail to our stories that can help us be Storytellers! SHOW DON'T TELL! We looked at how we can use our 5 senses to describe our story & we can also include dialogue to make it more exciting. 

In Bible we finished up the Fall into sin, Cain & Abel, Noah & the ark, and the Tower of Babel. Next week we will start learning about Abraham. 

In Science we began our unit of CHANGES ON EARTH! In this unit so far we have learning about the layers of earth (crust, mantle, outer core, inner core) & we also did a fun activity locating volcanoes on a map and taking a look at where most volcanoes happen on our earth....the RING OF FIRE! 


 Here is a fun picture of how creative our students are!
