I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. The weather is turning, so please make sure that your child comes dressed appropriately to go outside for recess.

This is going to be a short week because of the Professtional Development Day on Friday. I will not be in school on Monday because of Trinity’s Annual Golf Outing. We will be having a substitute teacher.

Don’t forget, Picture Day is on Thursday.

This week I am sending home two opportunities for students to enrich themselves through learning. The first one with be on bridges and the second one will be on famous athletes. These are not mandatory projects, but I do encourage all my students to complete at least one of them. Look for the information to be sent home on Wednesday.

On Wednesday we are having our Religion Memory test on the books of the Bible. It will cover Hosea – Malakai. The children have been enjoying the following Books of the Bible video…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7ZtWRSCH7E  As with most things on the internet, please make sure you view the video with your child, as sometimes the advertising may not be age appropriate.

In Math we are finishing our exploration and representation of data. We will be having a test on Thursday. It will cover all of  chapter 2.

Last week in Science we ended up focusing on bridges. Using just two pieces of paper, the children worked collaboratively with partners and created their own bridges that could hold over 100 pennies.  I am so proud of their work. 

In ELA,  we will be reading and discussing Roberto Clemente. In grammar, we are working on writing plural nouns correctly.   Our spelling words are slight, mild, sight, pie, mind, tie, pilot, might, lie, tight, blind, fight, die, midnight, find, night, silent, and frightening. We are not having any ELA tests this week.

In Social Studies, we finishing up the 5 regions of the United States. Please do not be concerned about due dates in Google Classroom.
