Homework is a little different this week.  Yesterday, the students were sent home with a recipe with instructions.  They are to intereview a “chef” in the family about a favorite recipe and write the recipe.  Please make sure these are returned by February 26th.

Week of January 22-26

We just might have a full week of school.  With the flu, holidays, and snow days, it’s been a crazy few weeks!  This week, the students were given new spelling words and a reading passage for homework.  The reading homework is due by Friday.  The spelling test will be on Feb. 1st.  We changed the spelling up this semester.  They will have words and dictation sentences.

Here’s what we are working on this week:











Reading:  3.9Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the varied structural patterns and features of literary nonfiction and respond by providing evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to explain the difference in point of view between a biography and autobiography

Nonfiction Text Structure

ELA:  *Review:  Helping Verbs, Be Verbs and Simple/Compound Sentences

*3.17ABCDE Writing process (focus on writing complete and compound sentences.

3.17ABCDE writing descriptive sentences

Social Studies:  See Teacher’s Manual for Weeks 9/10 & Introduce Thomas Jefferson’s quote


The students checked their supplies today and a list was sent home of things your child needs.  I told them this just might have to be stocking stuffers.  Amazingly, they didn’t like that idea.  LOL  Seriously, if you could pick up these few supplies and send them when your child comes back from the holidays, I would greatly appreciate it.  This group does a really good job of keeping up with their things!

Wish List Items:
Lysol wipes (We go through them during this time of the year)
Hand Sanitizer


I feel so blessed this year!  I have been so blessed with awesome students and awesome parents!  Much love!!!

Christmas Party Information

Our Christmas party will be on Wednesday at 9:00.  Mrs. Bridges has graciously headed up this party for me and has some fun things planned.

Don’t forget to send your child’s Penny Christmas and a gift bag for your child.  Remember….we are asking for something very inexpensive for every child in the class (candy canes, pencils, individually wrapped candy, etc…).  We want every child to go home with a bag of goodies.  It’s the thought that counts and not the amount of money spent.  We are going to have a wonderful time and create lasting memories!

Don’t forget to sign your child out in the classroom to save me from having heart failure when I can’t find your child….hehe!
