Newsletter Notes Nov. 19

Switching Back to Science-

This week we covered the 3 main States of Matter. They are: Solid, Liquid, and Gas. We found that it is easiest to think of the 3 states in regards to water. There is the ice, liquid water, and water vapor. We also talked about measuring mass, volume, and looked into density.

Next Wednesday we will take our Chapter Test over this material. Students have a study guide that we began filling out today. Please help your student prepare for our test. Thanks!

No Spelling 2-5-8 Menu-

Next week we will not be having a 2-5-8 Menu. However, we will be taking the Unit 9 Word and Skill Test on Tuesday. I have assigned the Unit 9 Take Home Task to our class today. It will be due on Tuesday. It is all about irregular verbs. For example, the past tense verb, did, comes from the present tense verb, do.

Comfy Reading Day-

On Wednesday, Nov. 24, we will be having Comfy Reading Day. Students are allowed to bring a pillow or stuffed animal, and a small blanket to read with. They may also bring along slippers to wear in the classroom. We will begin reading right away in the morning! Let me know if you have any questions!


I have included the letter about our play from Mrs. Barger. Please note your child’s costume needs. Let me know if you have any questions.
