Weekly Newsletter – March 14

Five more days until Spring Break! That was one of the first things students told me this morning 🙂 Can’t say I blame them, I am ready for a little time off too. I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and that the time change didn’t mess you all up too much. Here is what is going on this week:


What We Are Learning:

English: We are reviewing prepositions this week. These are not easy things to understand so I want to make sure we are not rushing through them. We will also work on subject/verb agreement if we have a time.

Math: We took a math quiz today over the first part of chapter 7 today. We are continuing through and learning about circle graphs, line plots, line plots, and median and mean this week. We will wrap this chapter up after break. We do have a timed test on Tuesday and on Friday. We are not going to be able to have our Sundae Party before break but we are very close! Keep practicing and encouraging your students.

Reading: This week we are working on contraction, comprehension, and we will be working on our Alphabet Books.

Social Studies: This week we are talking about traveling the United States, the U.S. government, and doing a quick survey of U.S. history.

Bible: This week we are focusing on the Easter Story by using the Resurrection Eggs! Hopefully this will be a fun way of learning about the Resurrection of Christ.

Spelling: We do have a test this week. We are working on different suffixes.


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This 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.

In Christ,

Mrs. Starkey
