Good Afternoon!

I hope everyone enjoyed the day off!

Here's what we did today....

In reading....we reviewed the elements of a fable and we reread the fable "The Lion and the Mouse."  We also reviewed the vocabulary words.  We worked in word work centers and we read the fairy tale "The Three Billy Goats Gruff"

In grammar....we worked on compound words and we reviewed common and proper nouns.

In math....we worked on even and odd numbers and on counting by 3s and 4s.  We are nearing the end of the chapter and I am planning to have the Chapter 2 test next Thursday (October 25)  A hard copy of the review is going home in today's folder. 

In religion...we started to learn about the sacrament of Confirmation.

In science....we read a Scholastic News Magazine about spiders.  We also read the labeled parts of the spider on a diagram.
