Well, we made it to the half way point in the year! I know I have said this before but this year is going by so fast. The next five months will go by just as quickly I am sure.
Report cards go out to your child on Thursday. Parent teacher interviews are Thursday night from 6:00 – 9:00 and Friday morning from 10:00 – 12:00. The sign up sheet for appointments is located just inside school’s entrance. If you have not already done so, please sign up for a time to meet. I would love to meet with you and chat about your child’s progress this quarter.
This week in grade one and two Bible students will continue to memorize Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.
This week’s tests:
Tuesday — Phonics test
Wednesday – Math Test
Thursday — Spelling test ( List # 13 grade one, List # 16 grade two)
Grade two vocabulary:
This week marks the first week that grade two will be expected to know three vocabulary words on their spelling test. Students will be given their regular word list, however a new section of the test will contain vocabulary words. For the vocabulary section of the test students will be expected to know how to spell all three words as well as be able to write the definition of each word. One word will be chosen by the teacher to write in a sentence. This section will be marked out of ten, with one mark for spelling and one for the definition (2 marks each word) and 4 marks given for the correct use in a sentence ( 1 mark for a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, 1 mark for proper punctuation, 1 mark for correct spelling, 1 mark for correct use in the sentence). Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this.
Love Of Reading Week:
During the 2nd week of February, students will celebrate ‘Love Of Reading Week’. Reading matters! After all, God uses the stories recorded in His Word to communicate with us. We relate, we learn, we experience, we see God at work in the life stories of ourselves and others…if we take the time to read them!
During Love Of Reading Week it is our hope that students will build and enhance their life-long love for reading! Some of the celebration activities planned include:
- Character Dress-Up Day
- Stop, Drop, & Read Days
- Reading Buddies
- School-wide Book Fair
- Much, much more.
- Feb 4 – Parent Teacher Interviews (6PM-9PM)
- Feb 5 – Parent teacher Interviews (10AM-12 noon)- NO CLASS
- Feb 15 – Islander Day- NO CLASS
- Mar 14-17 – Winter Carnival
- Mar 18- 28- March Break (inc. Easter)
I am so proud of all my students! We travelled down to Geneva Villa on Tuesday to sing and read to the residents there. Grade one and two did such a great job and every students took the opportunity to talk with and read to those at Geneva. They really showed God’s love to the people at the Villa.
Enjoy you week,
