Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week I am starting something new in spelling.  I feel the students are missing some phonics skills while using only their sorts for spelling tests.  I have included a list of 6 words that will be on their test in addition to 6 of their word sort words.  I will do this from now on from spelling, choosing 6 words from a particular phonics skill.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:

  • Summarizing

In Science this week, we will begin studying why plants are important to us and the products we obtain from them.  This information may be found on pages 96-107 in the online science book.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Your student’s spelling words and homework assignments have changed. Please read the homework sheet carefully.  There is NOT one standard list of words.  There are 3 separate lists according to your student’s test results.  I have printed ONE copy of these for your student to keep in their notebook for homework purposes for the week.  I will NOT have extra copies as I print these at home and each group has their own particular color of paper. 

Conference notes were sent home with your student on Friday.  You don’t need to request a conference if I didn’t check your box.  This has been done due to limited appointment availability.

We will have an “Almost Spring” Party on Fri., 2-14 at the end of the day.  The students can bring Valentine cards for their classmates if they choose. There are 10 boys and 9 girls that can receive Valentines. I will provide the refreshments.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:

  • Drawing conclusions

In Science this week, we will begin studying about the life cycle of a white-tailed deer.  This information may be found on pages 44-45 in the online science book.

This week in Math the students will continue learning about fractions.

We will learn about Abraham Lincoln in Social Studies.  This topic can be found on pages 62-63 in chapter 4 of the online social studies book. 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Cindy Martie

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I will have a substitute on Fri., Jan. 24 and Mon. Jan. 27 in order to attend the Memorial Service in Portland, Oregon for my younger sister who passed away unexpectedly over the Winter Break.

At the end of this week and next week, your child will be making a model of a habitat of their choice in class.  I am asking that you send in a shoebox with a lid for this project.  If you do not have one, I do have a few extra of my own.  Please let me know if you will need one.  The student must provide their own models of animals and plants that live in their chosen habitat.  These can be created out of paper or purchased.  You can find model animals at the $ Store, Michaels, and sometimes Walmart.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:

  • Character, setting, plot
  • compound words/syllabication

In Science this week, we will continue learning about Habitats in chapter 5 of the online Science book.

This week in Math the students will begin working with money and in social studies we will be reviewing for the benchmark test on Friday.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Cindy Martie
