Curriculum Update

Bible
We study the book of Numbers and learn that the Isarelites were ungrateful and faithless, rebelled against God and refused to enter Canaan. When the Israelites suggested that dying in the wilderness was better than fighting the Canaanites, God granted their wish.

Psalm 8- Each day we continue to commit to memory the beautiful words of this psalm. There are many who have said it already. I feel the students are ready to say this verse so their final due date is Wednesday, March 15.

We continue to work on fractions. This week we will at fractions larger than 1. We will locate fractions using fraction bars and number lines. We will discover fractions that are equivalent as well.

Book Clubs are fully launched. Each day the groups get together and fine tune their comprehension strategies with connecting, questioning, inferring, comparing/contrasting, and retell! Round 2 is ready to wrap up. Clubs will now evaluate their work, make adjustments, and then begin their third book.
