Friday News - Nov. 2

It was so wonderful to see all of you today! Wow I am blown away by what incredible parents our 3.1 class has. Thank you so much for coming and taking time out of your day to meet with me. :) 
Again, if you have any questions or concerns about anything please let me know. 


Here are a few things we've been learning this week in 3.1....

In Math we our working through ch. 5 on Understand Division. Next week we will wrap up this chapter on understanding division and take a test. Here's a video that talks about division as sharing


In Reading we looked at the strategy of Tune Into Interesting Words. Good readers work on expanding their vocabulary, meaning finding new words and learning what they mean! I love to learn new words and my hope is that all our students do too -- that's a huge way we GROW as readers! Keep working with your child to learn more words! 


In Bible we've been talking about Abraham. The biggest theme we learned from Abraham's story is that GOD ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES! He promised Abraham and Sarah that they would have a son, and although they had their doubts (both of them were really old) God did not fail them! They had a baby boy named Isaac---out of this son God established the nation of Israel. 
I know posted this last week, but it is a well done video that reinforces our theme....GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES! :) 

In Science we learned about weathering and erosion. We even did a little science experiment on erosion. They worked in partners to create land-forms (mountains, hills, valleys, etc.) out of sand and then, using a cup with holes in it, "rained" water onto their land-forms, observing how the water eroded their land-form. Here are a few pictures: 








We also had a special treat....Mrs. Roe came and read to our class this week! What a wonderful principal we have! :)
