Religion: We listened to the story about Jesus visiting his followers after he had risen from the dead. We talked about how Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would come to help his followers. We also listened to the story about how Jesus kept his promise, and the Holy Spirit was sent to his followers.
Science: We started our last einstein kit, which is all about weather. We explored outside, and used our senses to describe the weather. We learned about different types of thermometers, and practiced reading different temperatures. A new job in our classroom is weather helper. This helper will need to record: date, cloud cover, precipitation, and wind speed. We also practiced telling wind speed by making our own flags, and observing what happens to them outside.
Writing: We are anxiously awaiting to recieve our class book! The students worked very hard to get this done in time. We are now working on our last unit of writing which is all about sharing your opinion and being persuasive. One thing we are learning is that to be persuasive you need to tell at least 3 reasons why or why not.
