LOOKING BACK AT LAST WEEK

RELIGION – In Lesson 14, we learned that although Jesus is not with us today in the same way he was when he lived on earth, he is with us today in another way. Jesus is with us through the Church’s teachings, sacraments, and other works of love.

MATH – We learned about comparing 2 things (tall/taller, short/shorter, long/longer) and learned about comparing more than 2 things (tallest, shortest, longest). We learned about using a start line.

LANGUAGE ARTS – In Unit 7, Lesson 2 we isolated sounds in words and generated words that contain m spelled mb, n spelled kn and gn, r spelled r and wr, and f spelled ph. Our Read Aloud stories this week were Pond Plants and Fruits and Vegetables at Work. Reading skills that we worked on included main ideas and details and author’s purpose. We learned that possessive pronouns take the place of nouns and that possessive pronouns also show ownership. We read decodable book 85.
