Third and Fourth Grade
“For God so loved the world!”
December 11, 2017
The magic of Christmas is in the air at school, and I am sure at home as well! It will be Christmas pageant time before you know it; therefore, get ready for more whirlwind of activities!
WENDY’S NO LATES:
Congratulations to the five students who had one or no lates and went to Wendy’s last Friday: Nathan, Billy, Mahlaysia, Temiloluwa, and Megan!
Here are upcoming tests for this week and next:
- Language tests: Tuesday, December 12
- Fourth grade math test: Wednesday, December 13
- Third grade math test: Friday, December 15
- Geography Test #2: Tuesday, December 19
CHRISTMAS PAGEANT COSTUMES:
My boys’ cows will be wearing black pants and will need a white turtleneck. The sheep will need white turtlenecks with white, sweatpants, the doves will need to wear a white dress, with white tights and shoes.
We drew names last week for our Secret Santa’s gift exchange. Please have your student go shopping with you to choose a toy he/she would like to have; those are the best gifts of all.
Thank you to those who have sent toys for our “shop ‘til you drop” event. Students will be using their hard-earned stars to purchase goodies! The store will be opened for business on Tuesday, December 19.
SALVATION ARMY TOY DRIVE:
Let’s make it happen again ~ the giving spirit that is alive and thriving at Lea’s! Our students were determined to set a goal for collecting toys… and came up with an attainable number, 100. Any new or educational toy that we can give to the Salvation Army will be most appreciated. The ages among the children will vary so whatever you purchase can be used. Please DO NOT wrap the toy as the workers/volunteers of Salvation Army will need to sort toys according to the age of children. There is no price amount on these items; let your heart decide what to spend.
To allow for less stress with my students who have speaking parts for the Christmas pageant, reading Christmas comprehension handouts will be given Wednesday and Thursday of this week. No homework will be given over the weekend or next week. Please take advantage of this time; have your students work on their book reports and math flash cards. Let me know if you would like a practice sheet of math facts for students to work on during break.
Students will be given creative writing packets next Monday, December 18, to gather information and pictures to write an autobiography. Curl up in front of a warm fire and go down memory lane with your children. Students should return their packets in along with pictures on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.
If you have any questions, feel free to pop in after school.
