Dear Family, December 16, 2019
Our story this week is The Overlanders. We will be creative in our test taking for reading and spelling Thursday. This is a great week to let your child study and read alone. YOU can take a break! I know how busy you must be. Our grades will only help our averages, not hurt. I’m not going into detail about how we will test because I want it to be a surprise to the children.
In math we will learn how to square numbers; identify perfect squares; find the area of a square; simplifying with exponents of 2; writing 3 and 4 digit numbers; using base ten blocks; subtracting 3 and 4; following a recipe; setting a dial; and elapsed time.
Wrapped $10 gift cards and unwrapped baby boy gifts were due today. Please try to send those by Wednesday at the latest.
Tomorrow is the last day to check out a library book. Thursday all library books are due and it’s the last day to take an AR test for the second nine weeks.
Friday is our party at 10:00. We will dismiss at 12:00… no lunch will be served and no extended day will be offered.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We return to school January 6.
Teaching and loving yours!
