Important Events/ Reminders

The Valentine Party will be on Friday from 2:00-3:00. Our room mom, Elaine Goertzen will be contacting parents to help with party supplies. We will be having ice cream sunday's and making a Valentine craft. You are welcome to come :)

Students may decorate Valentine boxes for the party. I sent home a list of names last week for students to fill out their Valentines. Please do not send any Valentine boxes to school before Wednesday.

Reminder: Our 4H field trip will be in May, but final payments will be due on March 1st. If you need help with costs, please contact our school counselor, Ann Rider. She will be happy to help!

What Are We Learning?

Spelling/Word Study- Students bring new words home every Monday. We write in cursive for the tests. Please have your child practice writing in cursive at home also. We write down the correct sort in the agenda each week to help with studying at home. They should practice sorting the words AND spelling them.

Homework- Students bring home a reading log every Monday. These are due back to school on Friday morning (unless absent). They are only required to respond to their reading three times each week. Each student has a list of reading responses in their binder. Some of the responses are very quick and easy. However, I do expect them to use complete sentences, punctuation, and detail in their work.

Reading- We are beginning our Mythology Unit.

Writing- We are writing opinion pieces.

Math- Multiplying and adding fractions

Science/ Social Studies- Newton's Laws of Motion will come to an end this week.
