Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Parents: I know this seems early, but you may need to take time off from work. Students are already practicing for their chorus/recorder concert on Friday. May 4 at 1:45 pm. in the gym. This will be the only performance.
Some students have been found playing with little toys in class. Toys need to stay at home. Thanks.
Here’s what is in store for this week:
Gia has received the OK to return to school for a few days this week! Fundraiser for her family on Tues. 2/13 4-10 pm.
Valentine’s Day is Wednesday. Please see information sent home last week (no party, OK to bring Valentines but include everyone, etc.). Book Buddies in the afternoon.
Permission slips were sent home Friday about the St. John’s Church field trip on 2/21. Please return with $8.00. (If you are able to pay online, that would be helpful. Otherwise send in a check or cash in the EXACT AMOUNT.) Thanks!
Math: Brief time on probability, then begin adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators. We will review as often as we can for the upcoming Benchmark. Homework will include new skills and Benchmark review for our Math test next week. Possible quiz later in week.
Reading/Writing: finding evidence in text, review of skills such as author’s purpose, main idea, context clues, making inferences. Writing: Students will begin an in-school endeavor of writing a personal narrative. We will go through the writing process methodically. This will take about two weeks and should result in a piece of writing students should be proud of.
