Class picture disclaimer - this was taken 8/31, before masks were required again on 9/2.
We had a humid start to the week, an unexpected rain-day-off on Wednesday, and a perfect, cool end of the week. Lucky for us, our class has been great with rolling right along with the new changes we've encountered even only in the 2nd week of school. I've started with a heavy focus on responsibility, expectations, and listening to directions the first time. So far, off to a great start! After a bit more review on Tuesday and Wednesday next week, we are looking at several first assessments in each subject. Today we had our first Spelling and Religion Tests. And I made sure the kids practiced the SS vocab word "surplus" by teasing them with a big bag of M&Ms on my stool all day. I shared the sweet treat with them this afternoon as we had art class.

* A Rdg WLT will ask 20 questions total - 10 about story comprehension and 10 about vocabulary.
* SS CE - Students will need to locate and provide their own newspaper article. The top of the CE assignment page has suggestions about where to find a suitable article. There are various links for good CE choices in the green bar to the right as well.
* Religion - See the link to our Religion book on the right of this page. It includes detailed study guides, review games, and practice quizzes for each chapter.
I've spoken to the class about the tips above and have shown them the links I referenced, but will review these on Tuesday with the class.
Have a fabulous weekend! God Bless You!
