Dear Parents,
    Everyone really enjoyed the trip to the firehouse last week. Thank you Mrs. Kyroglou, Mr. Wolfrom, and Mr. Frank for helping out!
We are in for another busy week.     

                             What's Happening

  This week we are continuing subtraction. Keep practicing both addition and subtraction at home. We will be having our Chapter 2 math test on Thursday.
Please have a pair of dice and a deck of cards handy at home. There will be games to play for homework and its a fun way to sharpen our skills and have a chance to play!

  We will be reading and using the sight words for the story "Jack and the Wolf" and working with short a words-can. Please continue to question them about sounds they hear in words they are trying to spell at homework time. The children will be tested on Unit 1 sight words this  week. They can be found on the resource tab of this class page. we are continuing to identify adjectives, nouns and verbs as well as learning to use complete sentences with proper capitalization and punctuation. Please reinforce this at home in with their homework.
    A new homework game board for spelling came home attached in their green notebooks. Keep it there to refer to for homework each night. It is tic tac toe. They need to choose one assignment and do three in a row(diagonal works too) before the end of the week. Please do not have them do all three in one night.
  In religion . we are continuing to  learn about how important we are to God and how much He loves us. We will be focusing on the Great Commandment this week.
 In science we will be learning about the life cycle of pumpkins. We have some pumpkin carving and counting of seeds to end the week!

       Please remind your child to put their folders and anything that needs to come back to school in their school bag after homework is finished! We are learning to take responsibility!
             
               
Worthy of a RETWEET and a #
When learning about Jesus growing up..
" If Jesus was my neighbor I would totally play with him"
"Yeah...me too."

When learning about verbs...
    "What's a mooch?" (from a book on verbs)
  I hope if it was used at home..it was used correctly.

When reading Stone Soup.....
    "Wow! You can make soup with stones!"
Sorry about that one, didn't have the heart to correct.

Says the child with 30 pencils in the desk...
    "I am a very good collector."
  Yes, you absolutely have a gift.

I hope you are having as much fun on this learning adventure. Thank you for the gift of your children.
