We hope you were all able to enjoy your three day weekend! Take a look below for what lies ahead this week.
Spalding: We will have 30 words this week with a Spelling and Phonogram Test on Friday. Please ensure that your scholar is using their best handwriting and are careful to use correct Spalding letter formation. Practicing their correct letter formation in manuscript now will help them to more easily move into cursive which we will begin in February!
Math: We will be multiplying and dividing by 10’s this week with a short Quiz on Monday and the Unit 7 Assessment on Friday. Your scholar will come home with a review for the assessment on Wednesday night.
History: We are continuing our unit on the US Constitution and are focusing on the War of 1812.
Reading: This week we will be begin reading Sarah, Plain and Tall written by Patricia MacLachlan.
Poetry: Your student will begin memorizing our new poem, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost. Recitations will take place the week of February 4th.
Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Have a Wonderful Week!
