Wild about Jesus in Mrs. B's Jungle
Be strong and courageous.........It's a jungle out there
What's Happening in the Jungle?
In reading we were working on word families and rhyming words and the students were able to sort them by touching them and dragging them where they needed to go on the board. We practiced reading with our Bible lessons and using one to one correspondence with the words and circling them and highlighting them in the verse. We also looked at nouns and plural nouns and had to pick them out of a sentence and then circle them on the board. The list goes on on and on because we incorporated the board with everything we did this week which allowed the students the opportunity to interact with the board and be a part of all my lessons. It was TERRIFIC!!!
In math we continued to work on adding two numbers together and what it means to join the two addends to get a sum. We did many activities on the board where the students were able to not only add the numbers together but then also tell me and show me the related addition fact. They also used hands on manipulatives at their desk to show different ways to show numbers. For example, one student may show me that 6+4=10 and someone else would show me that 5+5=10 until we got all of the different ways to make 10. They really liked having the snap cubes to work with at their desk so that they could find out their own answers.
In Bible we continue to talk about how the Bible is our source of truth and that it needs to be our foundation for how we live our lives. We discussed the books of the Old Testament and New Testament and how the Bible came into existence. We ask the question "What is God like?" and then went to the Bible to find scripture that supported and showed us that we serve a good, powerful, unchanging, loving, truthful God that is always there for us. At our Chapel this week we also talked about the importance of them not only learning God's word but being able to share it with others and know how to bring others to the wonderful truth of our Lord and Savior. As I said before, we had a TERRIFIC week!
