Week of September 30-October 4
With our anticipation of cooler weather, our book for vocabulary this week was Possum’s Harvest Moon. The students discussed the changing of the seasons in the story and learned the meaning of unfamiliar words they had heard as the story was read. You will see these story-related words each week in the take-home letter each Monday!
What a full week we had with our math concepts! Our emphasis this week was on discovering the commutative and associative properties of addition. Additionally, our scholars learned to identify expressions and equations, their similarities and differences. They also learned to identify and construct true and false number sentences. Their mastery of their math facts improves every week–practice is really paying off!
Writing and Grammar
It’s so amazing to see how writing becomes more comfortable for our students week by week! They are now in the midst of revising their stories and preparing for publishing. And of course, this intersects nicely with their grammar lessons on punctuation. That emphasis has been on proper capitalization of the beginning of the sentence and punctuation at the end of each sentence. We are proud of our students’ progress!
