January 11th, 2021-Egg Candling Week

Hello Families!

I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready to crank up a new week!


Our Embryology unit continues to progress.  This week, we will “candle” the eggs to check their development.  This simply means we will use a high-powered flashlight to look “inside” the egg.  Hopefully everything will be progressing as planned, and we’ll have a high number of success stories after week one.

On Tuesday, generally the Zoom kids would not zoom-in after lunch due to it being a PLC day.  However, our egg-candling presentation is Tuesday at 1:40.  Therefore, Zoom kids should plan on coming back after lunch and recess at 1:15, as if it was regular day.


This week is week Unit 4, Week 2 in reading.  We’ll learn practice point of view, asking and answering questions, prefixes and contractions with not, as we read a number of realistic fiction stories.  You can expect to see a spelling list and reading homework come home on Monday evening.


In math, we’re off to a great start with fractions.  The first few lessons went well, and we’ll continue to expand our knowledge this week.  I anticipate homework on the following evenings.

Monday – Homework 4-2

Tuesday – No Homework

Wednesday – Homework 4-3

Thursday – Homework 4-4

Friday – Homework 4-5 (Possibly)


In writing, we’ll finish up our cinquain snow-globe poems, as well as write an acrostic poem.  Later in the we’ll begin learning about animal adaptations, and begin a mini-research project on an animal.

Thanks for reading, and have a great week!

Eric Wachter
