Newsletter for the week of March 18, 2019 This week we will take a break from the traditional story/spelling test routine and concentrate on a trade book, Where do Polar Bears Live?, an informational text on polar bears. There will be no spelling test this week, only a vocabulary test on Friday. There will be a test on Unit 4 in math tomorrow. Tonight is a great time to brush up on 3 digit subtraction. Wednesday we will start a new unit on clocks and telling time to the 5 minute. In first grade students learned to tell time to the hour and half hour, Tuesday would be a good time to refresh their memories on hour/half-hour time telling. We begin a new unit in science which focuses on environments for living things. The leprechauns loved the traps. They managed to escape, but left us gold coins and chocolates!
The book swap sponsored by 4th grade is Friday. If you have books to donate, please send them in with your child. In return, they will accumulate an amount of books they can get at the swap. Stations of the Cross will be Wednesday at 1:15 p.m. in the church. Students have short readings to say for the stations. If you are able to come, it should last about 30 minutes or so. Also, we will have STEAM day for the morning Wednesday. This is a fun time of moving around to hear four different speakers all related to a variety of STEAM topics.
The book fair is currently going on in the library and your child can purchase books. Tax is charged. Mrs. Whitehouse sent an email explaining a new payment method you can take advantage of if you’d like. Please refer to my website for upcoming events. Please email me if you have any questions.
