Weekly Newsletter – October 31

Good Morning! Can you believe it is almost November? This fall is flying by. I have to be honest and say that I’m ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Two of my most favorite times of the year! I’ll be patient though 🙂 Here are a few things to know for this week.


What We Are Learning:

English: Last week we wrote the rough draft of our “When I Grow Up…” paragraph. This week we will be writing the final copy. Students have been doing such a great job with these!

Bible: This week we are learning about Isaac’s two sons Jacob and Esau. We will be talking about how Esau and Jacob with different and how God used them in different ways.

Reading: We are continuing to read Ramona Quimby. This week we will be reading chapters 8 and 9 and comparing ourselves with Ramona.

Science: We just barely started our unit over matter last week so we will be playing a little bit of catch up this week. We are going to be learning how to measure matter and how matter changes.

Math: We are wrapping up subtraction today and we did some review in class. The review sheet corrections will be coming home tonight as homework. We will be taking a test tomorrow. We will spend the rest of the week just doing some review activities and then next week we will be starting multiplication! A letter will be going home later this week with more details.

Spelling: Our test this week is on Friday. Our words this week are focusing on the “le” ending.


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: Luke 2:6-7 – While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

Next Week’s Verse: Luke 2:8,9 – And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

Spelling Words: title, riddle, jungle, buckle, people, temple, rumble, trouble, capable, able, settle, handle, double, shuttle, whistle, sample, sparkle, vegetable, planet, history. Bonus: November


Odds and Ends:

Operation Christmas Child:  In chapel two weeks ago we watched a video from Samaritan’s Purse about Operation Christmas Child. Many of you have done this in the past, but for those of you who haven’t, this is an organization that seeks to provide millions of Christmas gifts for children all over the world. It is something we participate in as a school! Information went home last week about how to pack boxes and what to buy. Boxes will be due the Friday before Thanksgiving and we would love it if each student could put together a box!

Report Cards Envelopes: If you happen to still have your report card envelope please send that back in ASAP. Thanks!

Box Tops: Box Tops are due on Wednesday so we can turn them in on Friday:

Thank You: I just wanted to say thank you for the Panera gift card last week for conferences! I feel so blessed by each of you and so thankful to have your child in class. It was a nice date night out! Thank you! Also, thank you for taking time out of your week to meet with me last week. I know that things are busy, but I appreciate the time.


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


In Christ,

Mrs. Starkey
