Math: We finished our last unit in math which is a very short introduction to 2 2-digit addition. It is very cool to see all the different stategies that students can come up with to help them solve these big addition equations. We will talk about money with the last couple of days of school left.
Religion: We continued to talk about the Holy Spirit. We learned that the church began at pentecost. We learned how the Holy Spirit helps the church. We also talked about how names have special meanings, and we learned that Peter's name means "rock". Ask your child to explain why Peter's name means rock.
Science: We finished up our weather unit. We talked about clouds. And learned the 3 main types of clouds. We practiced mixing hot a cold woater together and taking its temperature.
Reading: We are working on the long o sound (made by oa and ow.) and long a sound (made by ay and ai) We have enjoyed reading a lot of Eric Carle books, and are finally getting to the art project. I can't wait for you to see the finished pieces, they are going to look very neat.
