Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
~1 Corinthians 13:4-8
We will celebrate Valentine's Day on Tuesday with a special snack (thank you to the moms who are helping with this)! If they wish, the children may pass out cards/treats to their classmates.
Since we had a Snow Day this past Thursday, we will be visiting Oyster Bay Manor this Friday (the 17th). The children drew great pictures of hot chocolate mugs in Art, and they wrote some winter poems. They will be sharing their work, and some real hot chocolate, with the residents.
I will be available for extra help on Monday afternoons from 3:00 to 3:30. If your child has a particular question about something learned in class (or needs assistance studying), please send in a note that day to let me know he/she will be staying. Pick-up is from the Weeks Ave doors.
This Week's Sneak Peek...
In Religion, the students will learn that God gave his people the Ten Commandments as a pattern for living, and that these laws are a sign of God’s love.
In ELA, we will read an informational text, Twisters, which provides interesting facts about tornadoes. Throughout the week we will discuss sequence of events, synonyms, visualization, and possessive nouns. We will also practice finding key details and important information within a text to answer questions.
In Social Studies, we will review chapter 6 in preparation for a test on Friday.
