January 14, 2019

This week is the end of our skills unit.  That means we will be doing assessments all week.  The students will read a story independently and answer some comprehension questions.  We will have assessments on finding nouns and verbs, punctuation in sentences, and making plurals.  We will not be having new spelling words this week.
Please remember that our Field Trip to the play is tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 15.  We will leave school at 9:00 and return around 11:00.  Please make sure your child is here on time, no need to be early just on time.  Thank you to those who brought $1.00 to cover the cost. 
We are working on cycles in nature, the life cycle of a plant, the life cycle of a tree, etc.  It is a fun unit and everyone seems to be enjoying it. 
The PTA sent home a blue paper with things going on at school for January, February, and March.  Look for the paper.  It was sent home last week.  I will put the dates over on the side of this blog.

Happy New Year to everyone!  We are back to school and in full swing.  Today is fun toy day at PE and everyone is very excited.
We are back on schedule in our academic studies.  We do have spelling words this week.  They were sent home yesterday and are listed at the side of this blog page.
We are learning about cycles - day and night, seasons, plants, etc.  
In math we have started chapter 5 which is subtracting with regrouping (borrowing).  January is a very busy time at school.
Mrs. Davis the art teacher sent home a small note asking for a clear, glass jar with a lid for every student.  She recommends a canning jar but any glass jar at least 16 ounces will work for their project.  She has asked that the jar with a lid be at school by January 11.  They can bring it to class and we will have it ready to go.

Can you feel it in the air?  Christmas is almost here!  The children are excited and ready for this week to be over (me too).
We are enjoying a school wide Christmas Sing every day this week in the school gym.  We are having fun math (adding and number recognition).
We will get back to our regular skills (english and reading) and listening (social studies and science) after the holiday.
We are not having spelling words this week.
Enjoy this wonderful time of the year with your children.  Find some snow and build a snowman or go sledding.  Try to sneak in a little reading if you can.   Merry Christmas!  Mrs. Segler

We have finished our study of the War of 1812.  We took the test this morning and I sent it home.  I think everyone really learned a lot.
Our spelling words are the 'ow' spelling as in snow and meow.  We have been working with these sounds the last few weeks in class.  I hope the spelling words will come easy for everyone.  The paper copy was sent today and there is a list on the side of this blog.
We are finishing up our chapter on adding with regrouping.  We will be taking the chapter test on Friday.  
Next week we will be doing several Christmas things so no reading parents next week.  Thank you for coming and helping us.  Enjoy your Christmas and we hope to see you in January.
