Newsletter for the week of September 17, 2018
This week we will read a non-fiction story, My Family and discuss the essential question: what are some things that families like to do together? Spelling focuses on words with the short vowel sounds of e, o, and u. In math, we will solve for unknown addends with teen totals, review skip counting by twos and showing pairs which will help us to identify odd and even numbers. We will finish learning about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey focusing on habit 6 "Synergize", working together and 7 "Sharpen the Saw”.
Andrea is our Student of the Week. We look forward to learning more about her this week.
Homework is usually assigned Monday-Thursday. Monday-Wednesday will be math homework and remembering. Thursday will be something related to spelling. After the first trimester, I will assign reading for 20 minutes with a log to complete. Your child does not need to wait until then to read for pleasure at home or in the car. I encourage all reading.
Stay tuned for our first all-school service project, which is sponsored by the first and second grade classes. We will be collecting dog and cat food for the local pet shelter. Culmination of this project will be October 4 at 3:15 with the blessing of the animals on the Feast of St. Francis.
If you would like to submit a book order, I will be closing it out this evening.
Have a great week!
I am a small pencil in God's hand. -Saint Teresa
