Friday News - Oct. 6

Hello from 3.1 and Happy Autumn! 

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

In Math we are continuing to work on 3-digit and 4-digit subtraction, especially with regrouping. Next week we will finish up ch. 3 and take a test on subtraction. 

In Reading we looked at the strategy of Making a Mental Image in our heads as we read....basically watching a movie in our head as we read a story! 

In Writing we are continuing to work on writing personal narratives. As good writers we can think of places and people who are important to us and think of small moments related to those people and places -- then the stories just start flowing!  

In Science we have learned about the different layers of soil. We also learned about earthworms and how good they are for the soil! 

In Bible we have been talking about the Fall; how Adam and Eve first sinned and what happened because they sinned. Although sin separates us from God we have HOPE in Jesus. Yup, through the family tree of Adam and Eve Jesus came to save the world from sin and bridge the gap between us and God. We will continue readings stories from the beginning of the Bible (Genesis) next week. 

A look at next week...
