Martin Luther King, Jr.

Your student brought home a poem about Martin Luther King. We'll be performing this poem as a class for the MLK assembly on January 15 at 10am. Please put the poem in a special spot and practice it each night. If you can't find the poem, here is the link:

Spelling

There will not be a regular pre/post spelling test on Monday and Friday of this week. I'm giving the class a spelling "inventory," which will help determine spelling strengths and weaknesses. During centers we will be reviewing these commonly used words:


said

what

come

they

went


In the coming weeks your student's spelling words will be adjusted to meet his or her needs.


Cold weather continues...

Please remind your student to bring gloves/mittens and other winter gear. Students go outside for recess unless it is zero degrees, or the wind chill makes it feel like zero degrees. A doctor's note is required to stay indoors during recess. Place names in items if possible. We have gym every day except Tuesday, and students may leave gym shoes at school if you prefer.


Recess Club

Ask your student about Recess Club. Each Monday, five students are chosen to go to the gym for fun and games during lunch recess.

Dates to Remember:
