Weekly Newsletter – January 11

Good Morning! Well, winter has finally decided to join us. Better late than never…I guess. I will be honest and say I was hoping for a little delay this morning 🙂 Here are something to know for this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: This week we are working on action verbs and linking verbs. We will start memorizing our linking verbs in class this week as well.

Math: We are continuing to plug through multiplication this week. We are working on problem solving and 9s and 10s. We also have timed tests on Tuesday and Friday (like usual).

Reading: This week we are learning about contractions and homophones. We are also reading our main story and working on reading comprehension.

Social Studies: We are working on another Community Weekly Newspaper this week and we are learning about our environment. We will also be talking about Martin Luther King Jr. as we head into the holiday.

Bible: This week (and for the next few weeks) we will be learning about the life of Joseph. We are focusing on the story of the colorful coat this week.

Spelling: We are taking our pretest today, so there will be correction homework tonight. Please remember that each word missed needs to be written 3 times correctly. Our spelling test is on Friday and the words are below.


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: No verse this week. Please be practicing for Speech Meet.

Next Week’s Verse: No verse. Please be practicing for Speech Meet…notice a theme 🙂

Spelling Words: let’s, he’d, you’ll, can’t, I’d, won’t, haven’t, hasn’t, she’d, they’ll, when’s, we’d, should’ve, wasn’t, didn’t, they’d, would’ve, could’ve, needn’t, you’ve. Bonus: January


Odds and Ends:

No School: We do not have school Monday the 18th due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Grade Cards: These will be going home on Friday. Thanks for your patience with grades this week. I am trying to get everything update as quickly as I can. I was sick over break and did not get the grading done. Thanks again!

Auction Basket: Our class is responsible for the Chocolate Lover’s basket. I have a bin outside the room for anything you would like to donate that would fit into that category. If you have any questions about baskets or the auction make sure to contact the office. The Auction is February 27th and we would love to see you all there!

Speech Meet: We do not have a Bible Verse this week or next so that way students can be practicing. I will be touching base with them on Wednesday to see where they are at. The due date for Speech Meet is Friday January 29th.

Parent Teacher Conferences: Many of you have already turned in your forms, but if you haven’t they are due on Wednesday.


I think that is about it! Hope you all have a great week.


In Christ,

Mrs. Starkey
