Week of December 18
Wow, Christmas is almost here! Three more days of school. So, I want to take the opportunity to wish you a blessed Christmas and a safe holiday break! Remember that Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
Thank you so much for your generosity in the PennyWars for the Bobb family!
Please remember that school STARTS at 8:20, meaning that your child needs to be in our ROOM by 8:20, not in the hallway. Thank you!
Advent started. Mid-week church services count towards church attendance.
We walked to St. Ambrose to watch their Christmas play. It was a great program about sharing God's Word!
We have one more memory for our Christmas church services. I hope you held onto that sheet. You can dispose of it after Wednesday.
There will not be spelling next week or the week we return after Christmas.
The reading listed is for this week and the week we return.
If you are still Christmas shopping for your child, may I make a few stocking stuffer suggestions? Flashcards (both addition and subtraction), pencils, erasers, and possibly gym shoes would be good ideas!
Your child may bring his/her gift for the gift exchange starting on Monday the 18th. Even if you did not see the note, your child drew the name and should remember who he/she has.
Our classroom party will be on December 20th. Finley is bringing goody bags. Sydni is bringing a fruit tray. Clark is bringing cupcakes or cookies. Eli is bringing napkins and plates. Lyla is binging a cheese and cracker tray.
We are working on the character trait of dedication this month!
Please feel free to check out the Spelling City link on the web page. It has fun games to help learn those spelling words each week.
Remember to practice flashcards with your child daily. A sheet is coming home today with the words that need to be practiced again.
PLEASE practice the memory verse with your child at home. Thank you.
Daniel is the Star of the Week!
Happy birthday to Tyler!
Thank you for sending in your collections of Boxtops to our classrooms.
I, also, collect poptabs, which are taken to Riley, whenever I can get someone to haul them up for us!
We will collect offerings on Mondays. Our offerings this month will assist Trinity Lutheran High School.
In His service,
We will learn about the birth of Jesus.
We are learning about transportation or Things that Go! We will be starting a new unit about a man who sailed around the world. His name is...
Please practice the sight word flashcards with your child often! We have re-tested over the sight words to ensure memory. Your child should have brought home a sheet with words marked that need to be practiced again.
HOMEWORK (for the night of):
We are learning about place value. We are learning to count by tens, using dimes and ten-trains! Keep practicing those math flashcards!
We are learning about Our Country, learning about the Pilgrims, the early settlers, and the Native Americans, as well as Patriotic symbols.
We are learning about matter. Everything is made of matter. Matter has mass and takes up space. Three types of matter are solids, liquids and gases.
