Our Learning Journey
We continued learning about evidence that proves Jesus is the Son of God. We are learning that Jesus has power over sickness, nature, Satan, and sins.
Students continued to practice reading strategies to help difficult words (stretch and re-read, flip the sound) as well as improve comprehension by checking for understanding as they read. Additionally, students practiced deepening their understanding of a text by asking questions during a read aloud.
This week we learned about ways to start a writing piece that makes it more interesting. Students tried using talking, a sound effect, a question, a flashback, or a small moment to start their piece.
The students have been practicing estimation. They are working on explaining their thinking to justify their estimate.
Last week, students had fun taking on the perspective of a drop of water as they imagined it traveling through the water cycle. This activity was not only fun and creative, but it also demonstrated students’ knowledge of the different stages of the water cycle.
Student-led conferences are on Thursday (Feb. 27th). There will be no school on Thursday. Please make sure you have signed up for a time slot on sign-up genius. Siblings waiting for their turn can be in the Library for reading, colouring or Lego.
