May 16 – 20, 2022

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.
