If you were able to attend Back-To-School Night on Thursday, we thank you very much for your time and effort. Even if you couldn’t make it, we appreciate your involvement and support of our classes.
In Jewish Studies this week, we continued to learn about Rosh Hashanah. We are also continuing to strengthen our reading skills each day. On Friday, we made greeting cards for Rosh Hashanah. In Grammar, we studied the differences between male/female and singular/plural verbs.
In General Studies, we had a very busy week, which included a vision screening, our first Marlins Volleyball Game, Back-To-School Night, and Picture Day! We also celebrated a special student’s birthday!
We worked on a fun mini book report this week, decorating a paper tree in our classroom with colorful leaves. While some kids are still finishing this project, everyone did a wonderful job!
With such a fun-filled week, we were only able to take the Spelling and Vocabulary tests today, not the Reading test. Therefore, we will review our story “A Walk in the Desert” next week, and then take the test. The Spelling tests were sent home today, and after reviewing the Vocabulary tests as a whole class, I’ll send them home too.
Connected to our reading theme, we studied the desert landform as part of our Earth Science lessons. We learned that the desert can be very hot and very cold, and that deserts are extremely arid places. Next week, we will continue our study by incorporating Social Studies and more Science (where certain deserts are located, categorizing landforms and bodies of water, and how the water cycle works). Even with only 2 1/2 days of school, we will pack in a lot of learning!
In Math this week, we finished Unit 1 by comparing numbers that were less than and greater than; counting forward and backwards using a place value chart; and studying number patterns. The students really enjoyed drawing number discs on our Smartboard!
Have a relaxing weekend!
