A Peek into our Week

Language Arts- Our book club this week focused on Snowshoe Thompson. It was a historical fiction book about a man creating skis in order to deliver a boy's letter over the Sierra Nevada mountains to his Pa. It was fun learning about what life may have been like in 1850. We also learned about synonyms and homonyms.

Math- We continued adding with regrouping this week. This can be a tough skill. Please watch the papers that come home, and help your child with corrections that need to be made.

Science- We continued learning about weather this week. We have been charting the weather forecast everyday. We learned about clouds and hurricanes this week.

Bible- This week we focused on forgiving others. We read the parable of the prodigal son. We also discussed that sometimes it is hard to forgive other people, but Jesus set a wonderful example by forgiving us of our sins.
