Week 7

Bible Bible Verse: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Books of the Old Testament: 1 & 2 Chronicles and Ezra

 

Faith Hero Joshua had a big problem, but God had a plan! Joshua trusted God, and obeyed God’s commands. .

Phonics/Grammar     Lesson Three will be introduced this week. This lesson will cover the phonograms er, or, ea, and sh. We will also introduce count and non-count nouns.
Reading Workshop We will finish off this first unit with reviewing how to share our learning with a buddy. Afterwards, we will begin our next unit- Exploring Nonfiction.
Writing Workshop While the trait of ideas is the foundation of a text (topic, main idea, and details), organization is all about the structure. Students this week will practice strategies that lead to a strong middle and ending of their opinion paragraphs.
Math This week will continue with place value by comparing numbers to determine if they are greater than, less than or equal to each other. At the end of the week, students will take 3 or more numbers, compare them, and then put them in order from greatest to least.
Social Studies Students will be able to identify and label the equator and prime meridian which divides the earth into the different hemispheres.
