Good Afternoon! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. We finally celebrated one last Christmas (just a tad late) and enjoyed our day off on Monday. Here are a few things to know this week.
What We Are Learning:
English: This week we are continuing to learn about verbs. We will have a small quiz on Thursday over our linking verbs (am, is, are, was, were, be, being, been). There will be a study sheet in take home folders tonight.
Spelling: We do have a spelling test this week. The words focus on the prefixes un, re, mis, and dis.
Reading: This week we are focusing on characters, setting, and the plot of a story. We are also talking about prefixes and suffixes.
Bible: We are working through the life of Joseph. This week we are talking about Joseph and Potipher.
Math: We started division last week! We are going to be continuing through that this week. We will do some review on Friday too. We took a timed test today and we have another one on Friday.
Social Studies: We are learning about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. this week. We will be looking at his early life and studying his “I Have a Dream” speech.
Bible Verse and Spelling Words:
This Week’s Verse: Psalm 118:1 – Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. (A short, but good one)
