What we’re learning
Our Bible stories for this week are “Jesus Raises Jabirus' Daughter” and “The YoungMan From Nain.” We will continue our work with the “bl” blend and words ending with “ed” and“ing.” Math will include finding a sum by counting on, adding 0, and counting by 10’s. One of ourgoals for this quarter is writing our letters and numbers correctly.
