Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. I know we are still recovering from the massive amounts of food we ate the last few days. We have a busy couple of weeks before Christmas, so here are a few things to know.
What We Are Learning:
English: This week we are learning about the differences between singular and plural nouns. We are also learning how to change a singular noun to a plural noun.
Bible: This week we are starting our Christmas Unit. We will be using the Jesse Tree to learn the story of Jesus coming into the world.
Reading: We are focusing on comparing and contrasting this week in reading. We are also working on vocabulary words from the story we are reading.
Math: We are continuing to plug away at multiplication! Students are doing so well and I am so proud of them. We have a timed test tomorrow and Friday.
Spelling: We do have a test this Friday! This week our list focuses on words that end in -le
Bible Verse and Spelling Words:
This Week’s Verse: Luke 2:13, 14 – Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on who his favor rests.”
Next Week’s Verse: Luke 2: 15 – When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

Odds and Ends:
Christmas Trees: Wooster Christian is selling Christmas Trees at the Buehler’s Milltown location. This is a great way to support our school! Contact the office if you are willing to help sell trees.
Auction Baskets: Information about our class auction basket went home a few weeks ago. We have the chocolate lovers basket! Supplies are due towards the end of January, but I just wanted to plant the bug in your ear now 🙂
Christmas Program: Mark your calendars! The elementary school music program is December 15.
Christmas Break: Our break is December 22-January 2 this year.
Box Tops: Please send in Box Tops and Coke Rewards by Wednesday so we can turn them in on Friday. Thanks!
I think that is it! Have a great week!
