Celebrate Read Across America Week 2/26-3/2

Help us celebrate Read Across America Week by picking up a book and reading with your child this week and by  having your child participate in our themed spirit week at school!

Here are the themes for each day this week:

Newsletter for 2-26-18

Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for the week of February 26, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,
I know you are enjoying this spring like weather! It’s exciting to see the daylight lasting longer in the evenings also.
Please see attached flyer about our annual Math/Science night.

Please check that your student is doing their homework.
Important things to know about homework are:
• Please make sure your child reads every night (preferably to you) for 20 minutes. This is in addition to the 20 minutes of homework allowed by the school district. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school.
• The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
• I’ve sent home a 2nd spelling menu so the children will now have 12 activity choices.

 

In Reading we will continue to work on all the skills I’ve listed previously.

In Science this week, we continue our unit on Life Cycles, moving on to the life cycle of a plant. Please note, the Life Cycle test will be on Wednesday.

In Math we will continue working with patterns. We will also continue to work on finding the sum/difference for two digit numbers. If you could practice adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers with your student it would be a great help. This is a VERY difficult skill for many students.

In Social Studies we continue our study of Ancient Egypt and begin studying Ancient China.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie
Cynthiamartie@spsk12.net
