Give thanks with our voices was our class theme for October. How fitting that we and the other lower-grade students were able to start the month off by singing in church on Sunday, October 8th. Parents, thanks for bringing your children.
Our studies are becoming more rigorous as we wrap up the first quarter of the school year. Students should be bringing home corrected math assignments to correct, English practice books to finish and check, social studies and science to study, and weekly spelling words to study. Please ask to see your child’s work.
FYI, memory work can be recited at home. Just ask your child to say it to you and sign your child’s memory sheet for the given day. If more than one or two helps were needed, have them study some more and say it again. They may say the passages and verses in shortened parts if this helps them to learn it.
The chapter books we are reading in class continue to entertain us and provide many educational activities for the students. Predicting, visualizing, citing evidence, and noting point of view are all things we’ve become better at doing. The children’s favorite book so far has been Frindle. What was your child’s favorite part?
Thank you parents for encouraging your children and me as we continue into the second semester. It brings real joy seeing your children getting along so well and working together. Continued blessings as we move forward together!
