Weekly Newsletter – January 30

Good Morning! Looks like winter finally decided to show back up. We are officially at 99 days of school! Crazy to think about for sure. Here are a few things to know for this week.

 

What We Are Learning:

English: We are starting a new unit where we will be labeling the different parts of speech in a sentence. We will be doing this and learning more parts of speech for almost of the rest of the year. I will be sending home some English homework just to keep you up to speed with where we are at.

Bible: We are continuing to work our way through the life of Joseph! We got a little behind last week so we will be playing a little bit of catch up this week.

Reading: This week we are focusing on a few different things. First we are going to be working on the vocabulary that is in our story. Second we will be learning about news articles and how they are written. We might even get into the newspaper business ourselves 🙂

Math: We are continuing to work through division. We are going to be wrapping it up this week! We will continue with timed test. They are on Tuesday and Friday this week.

Science: We started our Space unit last week! We learned about the history of space travel and this week we will be learning about the solar system!

Spelling: We do have a test on Friday. Our words this week are all dealing with different suffixes.

 

Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: No verse. Speech meet is due February 10th! Please be studying!

Odds and Ends:

100th Day of School: Tomorrow is the 100th day of school! We will be doing some fun in class activities to celebrate!

Letters of Intent: As we plan for next year it helps us to have some idea of what our enrollment might be. If you have not turned in your letter of intent please do so that way we can make plans for next year!

Speech Meet: Selections will be due Friday February, 10. We will be partnering with the fourth grade and will be presenting all together. Please remember that memorization AND expression are both important.

Auction: Save the Date! Our school auction will be held at Church of the Savior this year on February 25th. Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend! If you are willing to help with the auction please contact the office.

Box Tops: Please send these in by Wednesday so we can turn them in on Friday!

Valentine’s Party: Our party will be at 2:30 on Valentine’s Day (Feb 14th). We will be passing out Valentine’s just before the party, and we will make bags in class that week. I will send a class list home next week!

 

I think that is it for this week! Have a great Monday!
