LOOKING BACK AT LAST WEEK
RELIGION – We celebrated the Feast of the Guardian Angels on October 2. Then on Wednesday we participated in a living Rosary over at the church. It was just beautiful and the children did a wonderful job!
LANGUAGE ARTS – In Unit 2, Lesson 2 we isolated sounds in words and generated words with initial and final f, s, g and j sounds. Our Read Aloud stories this week were My Two Best Friends by Claire Daniel and Friends Find Solutions by Megan Thompson. Reading skills that we worked on included: summarizing, making inferences and point of view. We learned that some nouns have a special purpose. They show possession, or who owns or has something. These nouns are called possessive nouns. We read decodable books 24-28 and they went home daily. I hope they continue to read them to you at home!
MATH – In Chapter 3 we continued to write addition sentences and solve real-world addition problems. We told addition stories about pictures and wrote addition sentences for each story.
