We are working with base ten blocks and building our number fluency.  The kids will:

  • Represent the numbers 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90 as composed of the correct number of tens.
  • Identify the value of each digit represented ina two digit number. 
  • Identify the value of each digit of a number within 100.
I have finished testing everyone in Reading.  We will start a new round of guided reading groups this week.  We will focus on close reading skills and zoom in on: 
  • Identifying character feelings.
  • Identifying key details.
We will be focusing on plural nouns. 


Chapter 11 is all about how Jesus teaches us forgiveness.  The kids will hear the Bible story of Zacchaeus, a tax collector.  They will learn that God's Laws help them make good choices.  The children will come to understand the importance of saying they are sorry when they have chosen to do wrong. Finally, they will learn that God is always ready to forgive them. 



We are back into writing our nonfiction chapter books.  This week the kids will:

  • Finish their table of contents (write chapter titles) and make revisions as necessary.
