I hope everyone had a great extended weekend and are refreshed and ready for a new week.  This week is an extra short week.  
Tuesday – Dibels Testing  
Thursday – 1/2 Day
Friday – No School (Teacher Prep Day)

Even though it is a short week, we will still be doing Vocabulary words.  Please continue to have your student practice their vocabulary words every evening.  We suggest writing each word 3 times each as well as reading 20 minutes a day. 

Please do not forget to sign up for Parent Teacher Conference if you haven’t done so yet.  Here is the link to sign up.

Week of January 13-17


We have a busy week ahead.  We have started Mid-Year testing as well as our usual curriculum, so your students will be tired more than usual.  Please make sure they are getting enough sleep and a good breakfast so that they are able to perform their best for these tests.  

This week we have changed up the 4th grade’s work.  They are now doing a program and they will not have weekly spelling and vocabulary tests each week.  But we still HIGHLY encourage your student to read 20 minutes every night.  Reading is so important for these students that may hate or struggle to read.  Practice makes perfect, right?  We thank you for all of your support this year.  We are excited to show you how well your students are doing in a couple of weeks at Parent Teacher Conference.

It is a busy week for us, but when is it ever not busy?  We finished up math lessons today and will be starting new ones tomorrow (Tuesday).  We started our new spelling and vocabulary words for the week today.  Please help your student by practicing them to spell each one every night.  Also please do not forget your student has brought a book home from the classroom that they are suppose to be reading for 20 minutes each night.  I have not had many students exchange them since before Thanksgiving.

Next Wednesday there is a wonderful event planned called Quest Under the Stars.  It looks like a great time star gazing and learning more about what is in our incredible galaxy!

T
he weeks are flying by and we are making so much progress.  We love having your student in our class!  Each one is so wonderful and makes our class complete.  
We have been teaching your student parts of speech and the parts of a paragraph.  This week on Thursday, November 21st we will be having a small party where we will be building the sandwich that represents the parts of speech and parts of a paragraph that we have been learning. They will be getting a hoagie sandwich with meat cheese and toppings, as well as chips and a drink.  We will be having this activity right after recess around 10:20 before they all go back to their general education classes for lunch and recess.  Everyone signed the permission slips at the beginning of the year to approve activities like these.  The kids are so excited for this activity and have been looking forward to it for over a month now.  Look for pictures later this week of our activity.
