Weekly Newsletter – March 13

Good Morning! As of Thursday of this week, we will be 3/4 of the way through the year! Crazy to think about. Here are a few things to note this week.


What We Are Learning:

Bible: Still learning about Joseph!

Reading: We started biographies last week and we will be finishing those up this week. We are also continuing to work on our alphabet books.

Math: Last week we started our unit on measurement. We are continuing that this week. We are learning about miles, ounces, pounds, centimeters, and decimeters. We will have a timed test on Tuesday this week.

Social Studies: We are taking our states test tomorrow (NE, SE, MW). We will be learning about the Southwest region this week.

Spelling: We do have a spelling test this week on THURSDAY. Our words this week deal with different suffixes.

*We are also doing some testing practice this week to help us get ready for Testing Week in 2 weeks.


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This 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.

Next Week’s Verse:  2 Timothy 3:16 – All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

Spelling Words: dentist, editor, artist, hostess, actress, swimmer, seller, tutor, tourist, organist, lioness, shipper, chemist, investor, conductor, announcer, pharmacist, journalist, commuter, pianist. Bonus: mathematician


Odds and Ends:

Re-Enrollment Packets: Packets went home a few weeks ago! If you have any questions please contact the office.

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

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

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

Testing Week: Testing 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!

Sundae Party: We are scheduling our multiplication Sundae Party! We decided that the best way to end testing week was with a party so we will be eating lots of ice cream on March 31st. Please click here to sign up to see how you can help! I will also send out an email with the link.


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

-Mrs. Starkey
