[Math Week of September 10-14] This week we began subtraction 1-10. We worked through a few lessons in addition to hands-on learning with counting cubes. This week we also started math centers. The students were excited to receive regular computer time.
Chapter 2 Homework: Thursday, September 20th (due on Tuesday)
Chapter 2 Test: Tuesday, September 25th
[Science Week of September 10-14] For the first half of the week in science, we completed our study of man-made vs. natural/God-made objects. The students really impressed me with their knowledge of this! The latter half of the week began our study of animals! Students brought a stuffed animal of their favorite animal and presented them in a show-and-tell format. In this unit we are going to study what living things need (food, water, air, and shelter), what classifies a 'living things', animal babies, and animal traits such as where they live and what they look like. Lot of fun activities prepared for this unit! We will also be attending a field trip to the Kansas City Zoo on October 5th!
[Religion Week of September 10-14] This was an wonderful week studying Noah's Ark. We began by watching a video of Noah's Ark. The videos are from Beginner's Bible and can be found on YouTube: Noah's Ark. We crafted a rainbow and a dove and discussed the significants of them in the story. We also dressed as animals and walked the school 2-by-2. This week we memorized Acts 16:31, "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved." I used baseball as an example of being "safe" and "out" with Jesus.
