In Religion this week we will have our first test on Tuesday. The test is on Chapter 1 of our book, Jesus is the Son of God. We learned that God the Father sent his son, Jesus, to be with us. We also learned that Jesus was both human like us, and divine. In addition the test will include questions about the Corporal Works of Mercy and how we can live them. The students have notes in their copybooks about the Corporal Works of Mercy. We will play some games on Monday to review.
During Math this week we are reviewing Topic 1 and a test will be given on Wednesday. The test is on addition and subtraction concepts, and word problems in addition and subtraction. We will review together in class. We will also begin Topic 2 on addition, doubles facts, and adding three numbers.
We will read the story, My Family and read poems about families. We will also work on writing a friendly letter, and writing simple sentences. Here is the focus wall with all of the words and skills we will learn this week. The students will have our Reading and Spelling Test on Lesson 2 on Friday.
We used our chromebooks for the first time last week and the students did a great job. I showed them how to log into Google Classroom. I’ve created a “classroom” in Google for each subject. To join each class the students put in a code and it takes them right to the “class”. I will have the students write the class codes in their homework copybooks so they can go on at home. We also went onto Spelling City and practiced our spelling words.
Class Dojo is up and running! If you didn’t sign up yet please see the paper that was sent home last week, or let me know and I’ll email you the sign in. I’ve tried to keep it all positive points last week to encourage good behavior. But, I told that students that starting this week negative points may be used as well. If you see that your child has received a negative point, please know that they are give a warning before a point is given. There is an email feature in Class Dojo if you have a question or if the teacher wants to send a note.
Have a wonderful week!
