Our Learning Journey
The focus this week was on Jesus’ miracles of removing demons and healing a paralytic. 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.
We learned about combining sentences that have connected ideas. For example: I like cats. I like dogs. Can be combined to, I like cats and dogs. We continue to focus on punctuation and capitalization.
Last week we wrapped up our unit on skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s from standard and non- standard starts.
The students have also been practicing estimation. They are working on explaining their thinking to justify their estimate.
Last week, students continued to learn about the water cycle. Student’s watched water cycle videos, sang water cycle songs, practiced labeling and practiced drawing the parts of the water cycle.
