Second-2-None: Week of 4/3/18

Week of 4/3/18

This week in Reading, we continued our chapter book, The Earth Dragon Awakes. Throughout the story, we see what the characters went through during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Students have noticed how characters’ viewpoints have changed throughout the story.

In Phonics, we formed new words by adding the suffixes –ful, -less, -ness, -ly, -er, and –est. We used words with these suffixes to complete sentences as well. Next week, we will continue working with suffixes and review singular and plural forms of nouns.

In Shurley English, we started Chapter 9. We classified sentences with article adjectives, subject nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and objects of the preposition. We reviewed parts of speech, then we introduced subject-verb agreement rules. Next week, we will learn about pronouns and classify sentences with pronouns.

In Religion, we reviewed the Liturgy of the Word and its parts, and then moved into the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Next week, we will learn how to share God’s love and peace with others.

In Math, we measured objects to the nearest centimeter and estimated lengths of various objects. We also solved addition and subtraction word problems involving measurements. Next week, we will wrap up the lessons in Chapter 9, which focus on measuring real-life objects in centimeters and meters, estimating lengths, and comparing lengths of objects. Our Chapter 9 test will be on Friday.

In Social Studies, we made an art extension to show the three parts of the federal government: Congress, Supreme Court, and the President. We also learned about monuments, mottos, freedom, and symbols of our country. Next week, we will review the main concepts taught in the unit and take our test on Friday. Then, we will be moving back to Science. This week’s newsletter secret is: a governor leads a state.

Thank you for all that you do!
