Don’t forget, parent teacher conferences are next week.  I look forward to these meetings, as they are a chance to help your child be the best they can be.  God has truly blessed all of these students with a variety of gifts!

 

In reading class, we discussed story elements plot and character.  Ask your child to tell you about the plot rollercoaster which we made together in class.

 

In math class we have been studying graphing, grid coordinates, and ordered pairs. 

 

Next week’s memory:

We will try something different with memory for the 2nd quarter.  Students will complete a fill in the blank paper with the verse.  Spelling errors will not affect the scores.

 

Tuesday – 10/30

For by grace you have been saved, through faith.  It is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.             

                                                                        Ephesians 2:8-9

 

Thursday, Nov. 1  ( Not Friday, due to no school)

Love the Lord, all you saints.  The Lord preserves the faithful.
