What's Happening?

February 2020
Language Arts:

We have finished meeting all the SuperKids and we are excited to learn more about them and the adventures they go on via our reading books. The kids will learn how to plan or brainstorm ideas for a story, and then work to write about the events in their story.  We will talk about editing, giving our stories a title, and illustrating our stories when finished.  Keep encouraging your child to write down the sounds they hear while writing and stretching out words. Letter Pp will  be our focus this week.  Our memory word will be: put Please be sure to practice any booklets or stories that come home.  Extra practice and reinforcement at home really makes a difference! Continue to monitor the "b" and "d" reversal at home. This is a common issue and we will continue to review in class too!

Bible:

In Bible this week, we will be studying Samson. We will learn that our strength comes from the Lord and that it is important to obey Him. 

For the next 4 weeks, we will be learning Psalm 23. 

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.


Red section due on February 28

Math:
Unit 9 covers a basic introduction to Geometry.  The students will identify and describe two-dimensional shapes, and will learn terms such as curve, vertex, and side.  The hexagon may be a new shape for some students, and we will take some time to compare and contrast shapes by way of number of sides, and vertices. We will have some fun by joining shapes to create new ones, and manipulating shapes to fit into puzzles.  We will also practice our word problems by way of our February math journal.




Science/Social Studies:
 
  In February we will focus on Motion. We will explore how things move, and how we can change the way things move.  We will learn terms such as push, pull, and gravity.  We will also explore how objects attract by way of magnets.  
We will also do a mini unit on Teeth, and how to keep our teeth healthy.  We are working on bringing in a special speaker to help us with this (date to be determined).
We will also do a brief study of famous presidents and about our country in honor of our Presidents' Day holiday.
