Wow! So much excitement with the hurricane. It sounds like many of you had wonderful trips! Due to all going on, we will have our first Spelling Test with last week’s words on this Friday. Many students are also catching up on classwork, so you may see some come home with your child.
In school, we just wrapped up MAP testing, but I am continuing with individual reading leveled testing. This will continue into next week.
In Religion, we continue to talk about God as our Creator and how we worship and praise God with reverence and respect. Ask your child about the special Praise Song that we are learning with motions, “Lord, I Lift Your Name on High.” New for this week is a study on Fables and Characters in ELA Class. This fits nicely with our study on Fiction, and our read aloud, Winnie the Pooh which is, of course, full of morals and virtuous lessons to learn. Ask your child about the puppet show that their group created and the moral of their story. In Math, we are working on addition strategies such as how to add 3 and 4 numbers in the best combinations. Centers continue to be very popular especially the Math Games, Rocks, and Geography Centers.
We will have our first official Science Lab on rock classification with Mrs. Bair this Friday. Thank you to Mrs. Bair!
Thank you for all who attended the PTO meeting. We hope to see the rest of you for the October meeting.
God Bless and Peace Be With You!
Mrs. Ellie Russell
