Friday Update

We have had an enjoyable week! The students were all excited to be able to play outside, especially with all the snow. It’s hard to believe that we are just two weeks out from Spring Break! This week we started a math unit on patterning – talking about the difference between repeating, growing and shrinking patterns. We also finished up our unit on Weather and Erosion for Science. Students completed a weathering and erosion sort to demonstrate their learning. And finally, we have started talking about fiction versus nonfiction books, as well as what and how to do research. We are working on learning the skill of note taking, which we will use to do some research over the next little while. Lots going on, and we will continue to pack it in to these last couple weeks leading up to the break. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Bible Memory:

Matthew 28:5-8

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘he has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

We are going to be working on a passage from Matthew for March and April. We are going to start with these verses and then we might add a couple more if we have time.
