Weekly Newsletter – February 29

Good Morning and Happy Leap Day! Just what we need an extra day of winter. Wouldn’t it be nice if we got the extra day during the summer? 🙂 Here is what you need to know this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: Today we took a test over sentence labeling. We are going to start learning about prepositions later this week.

Math: We are practicing word problems today and tomorrow. We will be taking a test on Wednesday over division, fact families, and function machines. A review sheet will go home tomorrow night.

Reading: This week we are going to be writing biographies about our classmates! We are also going to do some vocabulary practice.

Social Studies: We are starting a new unit this week and we will be learning about different map symbols, state abbreviations, and features in our state.

Bible: We just finished learning about Joseph and how he interpreted the dreams of the cupbearer and the baker. This week we will look at how Joseph was released from prison and became the head of Pharaoh’s household. We do have a Bible Verse due this week.

Spelling: We do have a spelling test on Friday with test correction homework tonight. Our words are focused on the “r” sound this week.

Writing: We are going to be starting Alphabet Books this week! Please check your child’s take home folder for information and what I need your help with.

This Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:3 – he refreshed my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
