Good Morning Families,
I hope you’re staying warm and safe with all the snow from last weekend. It took me twice as long to drive to school today, but I’m happy to be here and ready for a new week!
This week the kids will learn about the importance of recycling, reducing and reusing trash and household items. As we learn about recycling, we’ll practice summarizing, point of view and homographs in our realistic fiction stories. We are back to a full week, so we’ll have spelling and a literacy homework this week.
In Math, we’ll continue practicing perimeter and area. The first few lessons are two days long, so I’m anticipating homework in my class on the following evenings.
Monday – Homework 5.2
Tuesday – None
Wednesday – Homework 5.3
Thursday – Homework 5.4
Friday – None
In Writing, the kids are in the process of writing their Personal Essays. The topic is, “A Person I Admire.” We will begin the rough draft this week, and will hopefully finish up the final draft before spring break.
On Friday, the kids will enjoy a special treat, as Arnold will be visited by a handful of student athletes from the University of Nebraska. The event is known as the “School is Cool Jam,” and the athletes will discuss the importance of hard work and studying to help you accomplish your goals in life. It’s always fun to see the athletes in person, and hopefully the kids will draw plenty of inspiration from their stories.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
