Weekly News
February 24

Can you believe that we have less than 60 days left of first grade?  We have learned so much and still have a ways to go.  I appreciate working together with you to see your child's success.

We played card games with our learning partners today.

Come out anytime this weekend to support the Lutheran Invitational Tournament, that we are hosting!  The L.I.T. schedule is printed on the Weekly Warrior.  The games will be played here on Saturday and at Trinity on Sunday.  The students get in free.

I believe that Mrs. Dyer is still looking for some volunteers to man the concession stand, as well as a few other jobs.  All of the teachers have jobs to do, and will be around all weekend, if you'd like to get to know some other ones!

Lent begins this week with Ash Wednesday.  The Wednesday services through Lent, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are counted towards church attendance.

Since we do not have to be at school on Friday, there will be no memory verse for that day.  Also, the spelling will be taken on Wednesday, per usual, but then retaken on Thursday for those who did not get a 100.

A note concerning e-learning is included with the folder.  The directions to complete the work are listed, as well as my e-mail address.  Please note that your child has 3 days to complete the lessons (the lessons will need to be turned in by Tuesday), so if someone other than you is watching your child that day, the pressure is off for them to figure out/complete the lessons.  To those who are keeping their children home:  You are welcome to click on the e-mail link to communicate with me; or you may contact me through SeeSaw.  However, unlike a regular e-learning day, I will have students (12 of mine and 7 of Mrs. Elkins) to work through the e-learning day.  So, even though I am scheduled to be available to answer your questions between 9-12, I may not respond immediately, as I am busy helping the 19 children in my room.

For those of you sending your child next Friday, since there will only be 70 children at school, please note that we will not be eating lunch at our normal time, but at 11:30.  We will take a few breaks, but the day will not be structured like a regular school day.

Book orders are due on March 2.

The psalmist encourages us to keep God's Word in our hearts.  Half of my students did not pass memory on Friday.  Please practice often with your child.

Keep practicing those sight words!!

Happy birthday to Emma (26th)!

Alexis is the Star of the Week!

Carter will provide us with something to keep us guessing!

We will collect offerings on Monday.  Our offerings this month will go to helping Community Provisions.  This is the last week to send in canned vegetables.  We already have two boxes full!! (I think the kids like the Starburst candy I provide for a thank-you!)  But, I noticed that Mrs. Elkins has more, so unless we send in some more this week, we will not be the class playing in the end of the year kick-ball tourney (FYI).

We collect BoxTops!  We submit them at the end of each month to the office to be counted.  It is a friendly competition between the classes to see who can collect the most!

I, also, collect poptabs, which are taken to Riley Children's Hospital.

Blessings on your weekend!

In His service,

Mrs. Bell

We are reading folktales.  These stories are lots of fun for the students!  We are writing our own folktale!

We are learning about root words and their endings, especially used in comparisons.  We continue to learn about plurals, especially irregular plural words, pronouns and compound words.

Please practice sight word flashcards with your child daily!  We have started our review.  Please practice the review sheet, as your child will be tested on it again.

HOMEWORK (for the night of):

We are beginning double digit addition. Learning place value should be very helpful in knowing how to keep the numbers in the right columns.

Practicing math flashcards is very helpful to your child!
