"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants."
Week of January 11-15
FRIDAY=FUN DAY!!!! Next week Friday we will have PAJAMA DAY and show a movie in the afternoon. This is to replace the Christmas Party we didn't have. The students will still be going outside to play for recess so please keep that in mind!
The only test next week will be our Spelling Test and Skip-Counting Test. Our memory verse for next week is Nehemiah 9:9-10.
Our new unit in Science is on electricity! It will be a fun week! Our new unit in Bible will focus on Moses.
We have started a new computer program to practice our fact fluency for multiplication and division. The students each received an individual pin number. You can also practice at home! If you have not received a letter explaining this to you, please ask your child for the information.
3rd Grade Spelling Words for 1-15-21 found, town, shout, owl, couch, bow, scout, round, plow, crowd, proud, clouds, ground, louder, bounce.
4th Grade Spelling Words for 1-15-21 funnier, families, pennies, worried, replied, varied, marries, carries, easily, silliest, jumpier, emptier, merrier, cries, cozily, sorriest, prettily, lazier, happiest, dizziest.
PE is on Monday and Wednesday. Please be sure your child has tennis shoes on that day.
Library is on Friday again.
Please send a note or email if your child is ill or going home in a way that is different from the normal way.
We are trying to keep the number of people entering the building at a minimum in effort to keep everyone healthy. If you need to pick them up for an appointment, please call the office that you are outside and I will send them out.
Please keep your child home if you are uncertain as to whether or not they are feeling well. This will hopefully prevent the spread of any illnesses, especially COVID19.
As third and fourth graders, the students should be able to be more independent in the mastery of their memory verse and Spelling words. I do encourage you to check with them on Wednesday or Thursday evenings to be sure they do.
In addition to our Spelling Test, the students will be memorizing and writing Skip-Counting each week as well. Multiplication is a huge part of our Math and this will help them a great deal. There is a SPECIFIC PATTERN for the numbers. Please be sure they practice them in this pattern!
Please feel free to call school or email me with any questions or concerns you may have!
I am looking forward to a GREAT year!

I have added some websites to this page that are helpful with some of our academics. If your child wants to be on the computer, this will help to make their time worthwhile.
Please refer to this webpage frequently for updates. It is usually updated on Thursday for the next week.
I ask that you support our classroom throughout this coming year through your prayers.
If you every have any questions, please don't hesitate to call school or send an email!
