In 1st grade Math we are solving problems by reading and making picture graphs and tally charts. In Reading we are applying the spelling rules for adding endings -ing and -ed to CVCe words, new spelling words came home this week, and we read the story “Golly Helps”. Our next spelling test is Tuesday, January 11th.
In Math we are continuing to add and subtract 2-digit numbers with and without regrouping. In 2nd grade Reading we read words with the initial kn, gn, and wr, spelling pattern, read and wrote words with the prefix un, and discussed the meaning of words with the prefix un.
In 3rd grade Math we used expanded form and place value to add 2- and 3-digit numbers and used place value to subtract 2- and 3-digit numbers. In Reading we are reading “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.
In Religion we learned about how God gave the Israelites quail and manna to eat in the desert and provided the Israelites with water and a victory over their enemy the Amalekites. God provides us with everything we need for our bodies and souls.
