Weekly Newsletter – December 7

Good Morning! I told the kids that we only have 10 more days of school before break and they were just a little excited 🙂 Christmas will do that to you. I hope you all had a great weekend! I was able to get most of my Christmas shopping and I got to hang out with my mom. Definitely a fun time! Here is what is going on this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: We are going to be learning about singular possessive nouns this week. This is a little bit of review from last year, but still very important!

Math: We are taking another timed test on Tuesday (plus one on Friday). Please be helping your child study these nightly. They have 2 and a half minutes to do 50 problems, so practice doing the facts in those 2 and a half minutes. It is so important that students are memorizing these. The best way to do this is to practice every single night.

Reading: This week we are learning about the purpose of a story and also about antonyms!

Science: We are continuing to learn about force and motion this week, and we will be wrapping this unit up before break.

Spelling: We do have a spelling test this week! We are focusing on a couple of different sounds this week. The words are listed below.

Bible: We are continuing to work our way through our Jesse Tree devotions and our What’s in the Bible movie. Students are loving the Jesse Tree!


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: Luke 2:16-17 – So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told to them about this child.

Next Week’s Verse: Luke 2:18-19 – and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Spelling Words: splash, throw, three, street, scream, strike, square, split, splurge, thrill, strength, squeak, throne, scratch, squeeze, squid, squander, arthritis, instrument, strategy. Bonus: jealous


Odds and Ends:

Christmas Party: Our Christmas Party will be December 18th at 2:30. Look for an email from Mrs. Mast or Mrs. Current with information!

Christmas Program: The elementary school program is December 17th at 7:00. More details to come.

Speech Meet: Details about Speech Meet will be coming home later this week. I want students to have break (plus January) to practice!

Christmas Shoppe: Our class will be going to the Christmas Shoppe next week. I will send out an email later this week with exact dates and times.

All School Chapel: We will be together as a school for chapel on December 18th. It will be at its normal time.

Next Week: I will be out of town next Saturday-Monday. I will make sure the newsletter gets posted, you just may not receive an email from me telling you it is posted but I promise it will be there!

No School: Christmas Break is from December 19th thru January 3rd. School starts back up on the 4th!


I think that is it for this week! Let me know if you have any questions!


In Christ,

Mrs. Starkey
