We survived our first spelling test. Most everyone did fine. A few students really need your help at home to practice spelling words. The words are sent on Monday. A full sheet of paper with the words Spelling Words highlighted. The actual test will be corrected and sent home so you can see how your child did. This is a new process for some of them. We do have new words this week. The list was handed out this morning and you can find the words on the side of this blog letter. Most of the words this week use the suffix - ing.
We are learning some Folk-Tales from Asia this week in our Social Studies.
We will be taking our Chapter one Math Test tomorrow (Tuesday). The next chapter is continuing on with numbers up to 1,000. We are trying to learn how to write them in different ways. Standard (normal), Expanded, pictures, and words. We will be beginning our Thousands Club books this week. Everyone will be given a book to write to 1,000 by 1's, 2's, 5's, 10's, 25's, and 100's. It is quite a challenge.
PLEASE REMBER we have a walking field trip to SUU Wednesday morning. We will be visiting the museum of natural history and the art museum. We will be back in time for our regular lunch.
School pictures are scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 14. A large paper was sent home today with all the information. These are the pictures used for the year book.
