RELIGION – We started talking about Gathering for Mass in Chapter 10. We will talk about what we do wehen we gather for Mass on Sunday, how we serve each other, and the Rites and Prayers of Sunday Mass. I would like to have a test on Wednesday. Look for hints in today’s email!
**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days! This is blue pants and white shirts for the boys. Plaid skirt or jumper with a white shirt for the girls! (Girls will be able to wear pants for Mass Uniform starting in November.)
SPELLING – This week our words are plural words (years, ashes, cities) Our tests will be on Thursday and Friday this week due to a short week. Please see the link below for the new list of spelling words for the next three weeks!
READING – This week we will be reading “My Very Own Room.” We will work on vocabulary, making predictions, using an encyclopedia, and looking at inflectional endings on our spelling words. Our test will be on Friday.
GRAMMAR – We will work on contractions in Grammar and Science words in our Vocabulary books.
MATH – We will continue to work on our basic math skills, but we are moving on to talk about measurement – length, perimeter, area, and temperature. We are also going to move to chapter 12 and talk about pictographs, line graphs, making a list to solve a problem, and line plot. and probability.
Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home! The more practice the better! 🙂
SCIENCE – I would like to have a test this week in Science. I am looking at a test on Thursday, but we will need to see how the week goes.
SOCIAL STUDIES – We will focus on Science for the rest of this week. We will start another chapter in Social Studies by the end of next week.
TEACHER NOTES –
DATES TO KEEP IN MIND –
Wednesday 2/22 and Thursday 2/23 – Don’t forget…PRESIDENT REPORTS are due this Wednesday or Thursday! I am looking forward to seeing all of the posters, reading the reports, and hearing what they have learned about one of our country’s leaders!
Next Week – We will be taking the ISTEP tests next week. We will do a practice test on Monday, Feb. 27 and then test on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (if needed). It will be very important that students get a good nights sleep, eat a good breakfast, and come to school on time and ready to go! We will start early, so it is important that they are there on time so we can get the regular “morning” things completed before we start our tests.
TARDIES – It is very important for the kids to be at school on time each day. When the kids come in late, they miss an important time in the classroom. My mornings are set up for some “new day socializing”. This is chance for the kids to chat and get caught up from the day before. It is also a time of early morning directions on how the day is going to go, what to do for morning work, and our daily prayer circle. If they are late on Fridays, they are missing the same thing in Art class, since we have Art first thing at 8am. When they are late, they seem to be more frazzled because they are trying to get caught up and figure out what is going on in the classroom. I know some mornings can be rough, but please try to have the students to school by 8am when the tardy bell rings.
**PE NOTE – On the days that we change for PE (Thursday and Friday) the students will need to be sure and have pants to put on for dismissal. This could be just a pair of sweats/pajama pants/etc. or their uniform pants. As we get into the colder months, I do not want them walking out to the cars in shorts.
