Weekly Newsletter – March 7

Happy Monday! Can you believe the weather we are supposed to have this week? Maybe spring is going to come early after all 🙂 Here is what you need to know this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: We are working on prepositions this week and how to find a prepositional phrase in a sentence.

Math: This week we are working on graphing. We will be doing some graphing with Skittles tomorrow and taking a class survey too. We will have a short quiz over graphing later this week. We also have a timed test today.

Reading: This week we are focusing on facts and opinions in a story, and learning how to see what a story is about based on a short summary, the title, and the cover.

Social Studies: We are wrapping up our unit over features in our state and mapping this week. We will be taking a quiz on Thursday.

Bible: We are continuing to learn about the life of Joseph. We do have a Bible Verse due on Wednesday.

Spelling: We do have a test this week on THURSDAY! The words will be focusing on different prefixes.

Writing: We are continuing to work on Alphabet books. I finalized topics with students today. If you could make sure they bring in books by Wednesday that would be great!


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:4 – Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Next Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.

Spelling Words: outside, midnight, overflow, outdoors, outline, overgrown, prefix, Midwest, pretest, midpoint, outgoing, overtime, overdue, prepaid, outfield, precaution, prediction, midsection, overweight, prehistoric. Bonus: magnificent.


Odds and Ends:

No School: We do not have school this Friday (March 11) due to a Teacher In-Service Day. Spring break is from March 21-March 25.

End of the Grading Period: Thursday marks the end of the 3rd grading period. Can you believe we are 3/4 of the way through the school year?! Grade cards will be going home before Spring Break.

Speech Meet: Speech Meet is on Saturday! Be praying for our students who are participating.

Class Pictures: Our class picture is on Wednesday March 16th. If you would like to order a class picture please turn in the order form that was sent home last week.


I think that is it for this week! Hope you have a great and beautiful Monday!

In Christ,

Mrs. Starkey
