Week 27 Newsletter

For our next book report, we will be doing a Newbery Award or Honor book report.  Students will need to read one of these books by May 1.  The students will need to have the book in class from May 1 until May 12, so plan ahead if it needs to be renewed from a library.  We will be writing a formal book report entirely in class, so no at home work is needed with this one except for reading it by May 1.

Please continue studying the Western states and capitals.  Our quiz on them will be this Friday.  We will study a new section every two weeks, culminating with a final test in June over all 50, so don’t stop reviewing the past states and capitals.

Today is the last lesson on chapter 6 in math.  We will spend Tuesday and Wednesday reviewing for the chapter test, which will be on Thursday. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, the students will be instructed to take home that part of the review which we worked for that day in class. I would strongly encourage you to go over the review (which is very similar to the test) with your child both of those nights.

As I begin to think about the end of the year, I like would like a little help from a few parents.  I like to have a fun auction for the students to spend their pennies earned throughout the year.  If you have any items you can purchase and donate to the End of Year Auction, from now until the end of the May, I would appreciate it.  Any inexpensive toys or crafts and fun items for the kids to do during summertime is what I am looking for.  Items from the past have been: ice cream cone coupons, rubber balls, squirt guns, activity books.  I accept gently used items too, if you want to get rid of something others would enjoy.

Current bible verse:   For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
