Weekly Newsletter – February 21

Good Afternoon! I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend 🙂 The weather was perfect for a few days off. Just to make you smile this afternoon… Here is a picture of the puppy that my husband and I got this weekend. We are very excited 🙂 I told the kids this morning and there was quite a lot of squealing!



Here are a few things to know for this week.


What We Are Learning:

English: We are continuing to learn how to identify and label the different parts of speech in a sentence. This week we will be adding adjectives to the list.

Bible: We are continuing through the life of Joseph!

Reading: This week we are learning how to summarize a story. We are also working through some words in our story that we may be unfamiliar with.
