Class Valentine's Day Party

We will be having a class Valentine's Day party on Friday, Feb. 12th. Students who wish to participate, may bring in a Valentine for their classmates. If a student chooses to participate, a Valentine must be given to each student in our class. However, a student may choose to not participate and that is fine, also. I am setting up a new Volunteer Spot for sign ups. Look for an invitation!

Spring Party

We will be having a class Spring Party on Friday, March 18th. Each student will need a clear, empty, 2-liter bottle. Please send one in.

Class Facebook Page

I encourage you to like our class Facebook page! [link below] I have two really faithful participants, what about the rest of you? Parent's are encouraged to log on and post an answer to the question for the day. Each student whose parent posts an answer will receive a point in our class dojo system daily. Students will only receive points for answers posted on the same day as the post. Stay informed! Be connected!

Spelling List #23

The Greek and Latin roots for this week are:






Students need to know the meaning of each root word!


We will continue our study of Science Chapter 4, Electricity. We will be doing a packet page daily with a quiz on the following Tuesday. Students will keep the packet in their homework folder throughout the week so they can review it daily to prepare for the quiz. It will be essential that students study for the quiz. The quiz is not easy!

Reading Vocabulary List #23

Our vocabulary list is the same as the Greek and Latin Roots spelling list. Students will need to know the meaning of the Greek and Latin Roots, the meaning of each word and how to spell them. List lists are available in Quizlet, NeuAnnotate and in the camera roll.
