Class Notes

Reading/Language Arts
We're finishing work on 
"A Visitor for Bear" by Bonny Becker and will be testing on Wednesday.  The story is available as a read-aloud on YouTube.  We have been working especially on inferencing and drawing conclusions, as well as practicing the vocabulary words that were sent home.

We have been reviewing sentence structure, identifying complete sentences and the subject/predicate of a sentence.  This week we will review nouns, verbs, and adjectives.

We are continuing our work on chapter one this week with various addition strategies, including making ten, doubles and doubles plus one.  We have also been working on problem solving skills, especially identifying important information and extra information in a word problem.

We started chapter 2 on Baptism and will be ready for our next religion test on Thursday.  We will complete the chapter review together in class, and the children will be able to take their books home to study.
