Important Notes:

  • In the test folder we sent home instructions on our fun fashion show activity for the 100th day that will be taking place Tuesday, February 6th. This does NOT have to be a new shirt. If you have any questions or need any help please let me know. 

  • Please make sure your child has 3-4 sharpened pencils with erasers each day for school.  We waste so much time in class sharpening pencils!

  • Take home folders should be checked and emptied every night!!!  Also, please check your child's pencil case.  If it is sent home that means the pencils need to be replaced or sharpened!

  • REMINDER:  Library Books are due on Tuesdays:)

  • Please remember to write a note (on a separate piece of paper) if your child is going home differently than his/her normal way.

  • Communication folders are updated weekly on the website under the Parent's tab.  Please check it for important information.

  • If your child is absent from school please call the school office that morning and send in a written excuse note to me when your child returns to school. 
  • Spelling Pretests are on Thursday.  If your child gets a 100% on his/her pretest, I will put a star over the word "Study" in their homework copybook, and he/she will beexempt from the test on Friday.  There are also 2 words from previous lessons added to the test (10 words in total).

  • If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write a note in your child's homework copybook or email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can:)

What Are We Learning?

Religion:  Our Chapter 14 test will be on Tuesday.  On Wednesday we will begin Chapter 15 and discuss ways that we show our love for God by our deeds.

Math:   This week we will continue Chapter 4:  Graphs.  We will learn how to make and interpret picture graphs, pictographs, and bar graphs (horizontally and vertically).  The children will be adding and subtracting using the data from the graphs.   We have begun subtraction facts with our fast math tests.  Remember to continue practicing memorizing math facts.  Use flash cards!!! You can make them or buy them anywhere.  There are also many apps and websites to use that encourage memorization of facts!! 

Reading/Language Arts:   This week we are on Unit 3 Week 4.  The children should be able to read the vocabulary words on Row 4. The Spelling/Phonics skills are reading and writing words with long "u", "o", and "e" sounds with the silent "e" on the end of the words.  We will also be building words with the CVCe spelling pattern.  Our comprehension skill is comparing and contrasting.  The Grammar skills are using "is" and "are" correctly in sentences in a sentence and using commas in a list of things and in dates.  I will be sending home a paper each Monday that will let you know the objectives for the week.  Your child also received a card with their user name and password to go onto the Wonders Reading Program's website.  I have assignments on there where your child can read the stories we are working on each week.  There are also games and activities that reinforce the skills we are working on in class.
