Week of May 16

Announcements:

Tuesday, May 17th, is the Kids’ Club Water Party, 11:30 – 1:00!  Students may wear uniform bottoms and Kids’ Club shirts to school and bring gym shorts to change into after school for the party.  Don’t forget to bring a towel.  A change of clothes is up to you, whether you want wet clothes on your car seat.  We will have refreshments and a water slide in front of the church, so you may pick up your child there at 1:00.

Monday-Thursday – School hours: 8:00-11:30am

Friday 9:00am – Elementary Award Ceremony in sanctuary. Go directly to the sanctuary, not the classroom.

Test Schedule:

Monday- Handwriting Test, Language Test

Tuesday- Reading Comprehension, Math Speed Drills

Wednesday- Math Test, Bible Story Test

Thursday- Phonics Tests- written and oral, Spelling Test

 

Homework (material to review and practice for tests)

Seatwork- Each week, I will send home any unfinished worksheets that students have not finished in class for homework. If your child has a lot of pages, I encourage them to do only a page or two a night. Please use these pages to review and practice the concepts we are learning. Also, I will send home checked seatwork to use to review.

Mathwritten-setting time, count by fives, counting money, identifying greater than, less than or equal with numbers or math facts, adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers, adding 3 digit numbers, solving story problems, addition and subtraction facts Families 1-13; and Speed Drill – students have 2 minutes to complete 12 addition and subtraction problems (4 sets of these) including adding and subtracting up to 3 numbers

PHONICS:  For written test– write special sounds in words (study Chart 10,11,12,13), write words with special sounds and spelling words, and oral test -practice reading one-and two-syllable words with one or two vowels, and words with special sounds from Chart 6,7,8,9,10,11.

The Handbook for Reading (apple book) is your “Phonics Bible”. Have your child read letter sounds, blends with long and short vowel sounds, and words to you. You could also dictate sounds, blends, and clue words for special sounds to your child for him/her to write. Your child should be memorizing the special sounds and clue words for Charts 6 and 7.  We learn these so that students can use this when sounding out new words.  They should read each special sound and clue word and then spell them (example:  “ck in duck, c – k”).  You could make a matching game with the clue words on one type of card and the special sounds on another, mix them up, and have your child match the clue word with the special sound.  Note:  blends should be read as one sound, not sounding out each letter (example:  “la”, not “l – a”).

Spelling: For homework, I sent home a Spelling Bee sheet. Students need to write their words 3 times by Thursday and return in their red folder on Thursday for extra points. Each day students should study their words.

For the test this week, study these words: List 30- lace, face, grace, price, mice, ice, cent, city, circus, pencil, circle, bicycle, put, pull, push

 

Bible: Bible stories for this week are Jesus talks with the two walking to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-45), Jesus appears to his disciples (John 20:19-29, Jesus cooks fish for his disciples (John21:1-19), and Jesus ascending into heaven (Acts 1:1-11)

 

HANDWRITING: As a motivation to write neatly on handwriting tests, I am allowing any student who earns an A on the handwriting does not have to do one seatwork page for handwriting.

If your child is not getting A’s on the Writing tests, he/she should practice writing at home using lined paper that we use at school (with dotted lines in the middle).  You could have your child write the spelling words, his/her name (which is also graded on the writing tests).   Using the Manuscript Guide (copy in your Orientation packet), have your child practice writing the alphabet and numbers, and words. Make sure that they are holding their pencils correctly.

Language:  Test on Chapter 14 in Shurley English. Review with your child the worksheets that were sent home for the test

WE’RE IN THE HOME STRETCH!!!  THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND HELP THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

School Hours:  8:00 to 11:30 Mon. – Thurs.; Friday 9:00 in sanctuary

Tuesday, May 17th, is the Kids’ Club Water Party, 11:30 – 1:00!  Students may wear uniform bottoms and Kids’ Club shirts to school and bring gym shorts to change into after school for the party.  Don’t forget to bring a towel.  A change of clothes is up to you, whether you want wet clothes on your car seat.  We will have refreshments and a water slide in front of the church, so you may pick up your child there at 1:00.

AR Prizes:  Just so you know, all of the stuffed animals that the kids brought home on Friday were thoroughly washed, even the huge ones (I had to take the giant ones to the laundermat and use the giant washers).  This class absolutely rocked AR this year!!

Elementary Awards Ceremony – Friday, May 20th at 9:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.  GO DIRECTLY TO THE SANCTUARY, NOT THE CLASSROOM, ON FRIDAY.  PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO ATTEND THIS BECAUSE ALL THE KIDS RECEIVE MANY CERTIFICATES, AND THEY DESERVE THE RECOGNITION!  WE TRY TO SPEED IT ALONG!

Snacks:  We have extra snacks left over, so don’t worry about sending in snacks this week!  FYI:  lunch is not served this week.

TESTS

Monday:  Language sentence quiz (writing sentences correctly)

Tuesday:  Math test and Speed Drill

Wednesday:  Phonics test and Spelling test; suffix quiz

Thursday:  Make-up tests

No Bible memory verse.  The kids took a Bible Practical test last Friday, and I will sit down with each child individually and go over the questions missed so each child will receive the 100 points.  I told the kids that they can’t spread God’s Word and answer questions about God if they don’t know the basics, so this way I can see what each child may have missed and explain it to him/her.

Phonics/Spelling:  Review worksheets I send home.  I correct each one, so you can see where your child needs practice.  Review the last Spelling list with your child daily.  Practice adding suffixes to root words.

Spelling list 30:  lace, face, grace, price, mice, ice, cent, city, circus, pencil, circle, bicycle, put, pull, push

Math:  Review greater than/less than, adding 2- and 3-digit numbers, story problems, telling time, counting by 5’s, adding coins, and addition and subtraction facts.  Review the worksheets I send home to see how well your child knows these skills.  I time speed drills 2 minutes per section, which is 2 minutes to complete 12 problems.  That should be plenty of time to complete it and do well.

Homework (material to review and practice for tests)

Seatwork- Each week, I will send home any unfinished worksheets that students have not finished in class for homework. If your child has a lot of pages, I encourage them to do only a page or two a night. Please use these pages to review and practice the concepts we are learning. Also, I will send home checked seatwork to use to review.

Mathwritten-telling time, identifying measures such as 1 foot=12 in., 1 yard=3 feet, 1 pint=2 cups, 1 gallon=4 quarts, 1 pound=16oz, 1 hour=60min. etc, identifying greater than and less than, solving story problems, adding 2-digit numbers, adding with carrying, adding and subtracting 3 numbers, addition family 13 facts, filling in dates on calendar, addition and subtraction facts Families 1-12; and Speed Drill – students have 2 minutes to complete 12 addition and subtraction problems (4 sets of these) including adding and subtracting up to 3 numbers

PHONICS:  For written test– write special sounds in words (study Chart 6, 7,8,9,10,11,12), write words with special sounds and spelling words, and oral test -practice reading one-and two-syllable words with one or two vowels, and words with special sounds from Chart 6,7,8,9,10,11.

The Handbook for Reading (apple book) is your “Phonics Bible”. Have your child read letter sounds, blends with long and short vowel sounds, and words to you. You could also dictate sounds, blends, and clue words for special sounds to your child for him/her to write. Your child should be memorizing the special sounds and clue words for Charts 6 and 7.  We learn these so that students can use this when sounding out new words.  They should read each special sound and clue word and then spell them (example:  “ck in duck, c – k”).  You could make a matching game with the clue words on one type of card and the special sounds on another, mix them up, and have your child match the clue word with the special sound.  Note:  blends should be read as one sound, not sounding out each letter (example:  “la”, not “l – a”).

Spelling: For homework, I sent home a Spelling Bee sheet. Students need to write their words 3 times by Thursday and return in their red folder on Thursday for extra points. Each day students should study their words.

For the test this week, study these words: List 27- says, are, your, from, I’m, here, because, where, Mother, been, don’t, were, any, some, said

 

Bible: Bible verse:  Exodus 20: 17, “ Do not covet your neighbor’s house.  Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female slave, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Bible stories for this week are Jesus triumphal entry (Mark 11:1-11, 15-19) and the Last Supper (Matthew 26:17-35, John 13:1-15, 21-30).

HANDWRITING: As a motivation to write neatly on handwriting tests, I am allowing any student who earns an A on the handwriting does not have to do one seatwork page for handwriting.

If your child is not getting A’s on the Writing tests, he/she should practice writing at home using lined paper that we use at school (with dotted lines in the middle).  You could have your child write the spelling words, his/her name (which is also graded on the writing tests).   Using the Manuscript Guide (copy in your Orientation packet), have your child practice writing the alphabet and numbers, and words. Make sure that they are holding their pencils correctly.

Language:  We are in Chapter 13- correcting fragments by adding the missing subject or predicate, and classifying sentences with adjectives in the preposition phrase

Reading: Comprehension Test will include a short story and questions about the story. Please read the assigned pages each day from the reading calendar and initial the date on the calendar after reading. The reading calendar can be folded and kept in the reader or in the red folder.
