October 18, 2018: It the week my classroom has been waiting for all school year. Camp Timbers! The boys are stomping around the woods learning outdoor skills, archery, teamwork and many other fun activities. They return home at 1:30 and can and should go home at that time. They will be exhausted after having so much fun. Speaking of having fun, Teachers Conference last week was really a great experience for the teachers. I learned so many new things! I have already started using some of the new resources in the classroom and have plans to add more as the year goes on.
October 4, 2018:On Mon and Tues of this week we were blessed with the opportunity to host an MLS student in our class, Olivia Krueger, as she participated in the Taste of MInistry program offered by MLS. Olivia wants to be a teacher and she had the chance to teach some classes and work with the students. We had a great time and are glad for the chance to have met her! Can you believe we are halfway through the first quarter already! Don’t forget to check your student’s grades on Teacherease.com to see a midterm snapshot of how the year is going. (info on how to log in is in the kids planners) We are taking our Spelling and Reading tests on Thursday this week because we will be at Cardinal for a Day at MLS on Friday.
Sept 27, 2018: We had our first Social Studies test on Wed and worked hard at learning how to prepare for tests. Friday is a Spelling test and our first English quiz. Be sure to review the 24 helping verbs - they will be on the quiz!
Sept 20, 2018: Sorry I missed the deadline for getting a paragraph in last week’s newsletter! Turns out no news was good news. We have had a good start to the year. Our regular routine is to have spelling tests on Fridays so please review spelling words with your child during the week so Friday is a stress free test. Next week Wed we will have our first Social Studies test on Chap. 11. A study guide will be coming home if it hasn’t already so you can help them prepare.
Sept 6, 2018: We have had a strong start to our school year! Thanks for letting us teach your children. We have a few housekeeping items to deal with. Please be sure your child has outside shoes to wear at recess. When the weather is wet, they will need boots but even in nice weather we want the kids to have dedicated shoes for recess so mud doesn’t get tracked into school. Also, please be sure your child has a paint shirt (button up, not pull over the head) for Friday’s art class. Please help your student fill out the back page of their planner. Thanks!
