Newsletter – March 6

Good Morning! It is finally March which means spring will come…hopefully sooner rather than later 🙂 Here are a few things to know for this week.


What We Are Learning:

English: We are finishing up our first unit of labeling! We have been working on identifying subject nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, and article adjectives. We will be having a quiz on Thursday.

Reading: This week we are working on biographies of our classmates.

Math: We took our chapter 7 test today. Tomorrow we start our unit on measurement which includes cm, feet, inches, yards, meters, liters, temperature, and time. We have a timed test Tuesday and Friday.

Social Studies: We are continuing to learn our states! Tomorrow we have a quiz over both the Northeast and the Southeast. We will be starting our unit over the Midwest this week.

Writing: We are getting ready to jump into our ABC books! Please make sure to send a book or two with your child tomorrow so they can start.

Spelling: We do have a test on Friday this week. Our words all deal with prefixes.


Bible Verse:

This Week’s Verse:  Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Next Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:6 – Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Spelling Words: prepaid, midnight, overflow, outdoors, outline, overgrown, prefix, Midwest, pretest, midpoint, outgoing, overtime, overdue, outside, outfield, precaution, prediction, midsection, overweight, prehistoric. Bonus: Mississippi


Odds and Ends:

Ice Cream Party: This is not for multiplication! However, we did win highest attendance at the skating party last month so we get an ice cream party! We are doing it Thursday afternoon 🙂 Nothing you need to do, just thought it would be fun for you to know.

Re-Enrollment Packets: Packets went home last week! If you have any questions please contact the office.

Class Pictures: We will be taking our class picture next week on Wednesday March 15. If you would like to order one please return the order form by picture day.

No School: There is no school Friday March 17th due to a teacher in service day.

Third Quarter: The end of the 3rd quarter is Thursday March 16th. Grade cards will be going home the 24th.

Testing Week: Test will be March 27-31. Please make sure that as you are scheduling doctors appointments, etc that you try to avoid that week. It is very hard to make up tests so we want to avoid that as much as possible. Thanks!


I think that is it! Have a great week!
