The Art of Words- We are studying the life of Abraham and spending time in prayer for our families and friends. The children will be assigned their Scripture from the Book of James this week and will need to practice the recitation at home during the next two weeks. We will read Charlotte’s Web, learn new vocabulary in class, and study the different types of animals from the book. Our focus in Spelling will be on words ending in -ge and -dge. Please have the children spell the words aloud for extra practice. In Grammar we will continue to work at labeling the parts of speech in a sentence, writing dictation sentences, and working on plurals and subject/verb agreement.
We spend time in class on review activities and the children have many opportunities to practice speaking and presenting information in an articulate manner.
The Art of Numbers- We will review the multiplication/division facts we have already worked on and add the 7’s this week. We’ll also work on mental math strategies and journaling. Their work will consist of review in Roman numerals, solving word problems, solving equations, multiplying and dividing by 10, 100,and 1,ooo, reading different types of graphs, telling time, and counting money.
We are enjoying our study of the earth, rocks, volcanos, and will add earthquakes and caves this week. *Rock Collections, Pet Rocks, and Volcanos are due next week.
Grandparents Day was wonderful! The children did a great job and were so excited to spend some time with their Grandparents. Thank you for sending in food and helping us welcome our beloved Grandparents.
