From our teachers….
This week we finished meeting all of our letter people. We have been busy reviewing all of our letters and all that we have learned over this year in preschool. We also took our end of the year assessments that will tell us how much we learned this year. It has really been a busy week.
In Jesus Time we are reading Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7, 18-25 and Psalm 139:13-18. We are learning about how God made us. He made helps us take care of our bodies so that we can serve Him.
We will be going to Lions Club Park on Tuesday, May 21st at noon to eat lunch and celebrate the end of the school year. Please return your child’s permission slip asap. Please be aware that you will need to leave a booster seat got your child and we will be in need of drivers to and from the park. If you signed up to drive children other than your own please make sure that you have a current background check on file in the office. Remember this trip will only be possible if we have enough drivers to take us there.
If you still have a library book checked out please make sure you are looking for it at home to return to our library. I sent home letters on Wednesday to those who still have books out.
Kindergarten and 7th grade graduation will be on May 21st. We will be singing at graduation so please come and help cheer on our friends and sing.
Remember Wednesday, May 22 is the last day of school. We will be dismissing at 11:00 am. There will be no after school care! At 5:30 that evening don’t forget the PTL picnic. There will be food and games and lots of fun! Come celebrate a great school year.
As always feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
We have learned that Jesus has given us an important promise. Just like His disciples, He promises to be with us wherever we go. He will be with us this summer and when we start First Grade. He loves us and washes away our sins. He even has a place for us in heaven. We are blessed!
Our last Letter Person arrived this week. His name is Mr. X and he is very different from his friends. He walks upside down! Mr. X likes everyone- even those who look, see and feel differently from his friends. We made xylophone puppets and read a poem titled “The X Ray”.
Next week we will have two Field Trips. Permission slips need to be turned in ASAP. Drivers are still needed. Please make sure we have booster seats both days. Monday we will also need a sack lunch.
Graduation is Tuesday, May 21st at 7:00. Please have your child in the church basement by 6:45. Church dress is appropriate.
Early dismissal is at 11:00 on Wednesday.
Thank you for all the support you have given me the past school year. Your time and effort are greatly appreciated!
Have a great weekend—don't forget Church and Sunday school!
First and Second Grades
Our Bible stories this week were about Mary and Martha, the Widow's Mite, and the Lord's Prayer. Jesus unselfishly gave His life for us on the cross so that we might have the riches of heaven. He deserves our thanks and praise.
5/17 “Sing to the Lord, bless His name; tell of His salvation from day to day.” Psalm 96:2
The first graders are counting hundreds, tens, and ones, reviewing subtraction facts, and identifying geometric solids.
The second graders are practicing the 2,3,4, and 5 multiplication facts. They are also measuring mass using grams and kilograms, doubling a number, and dividing a set of objects into equal groups.
First Grade Spelling Words:
5/17 her, I, their, his, him, our, you, very
Second Grade Spelling Words
5/17 over, after, under, other, people, little, ever, flower, another, apple, purple, table
Challenge Words: number, trouble, gentle
First and second graders learned about letter writing and using a dictionary in English.
We are learning about healthy eating in Science.
Five students have already reached their goal in AR! The rest have some more reading to do. Most of the children are right on target and should have all of their points to earn their trip to Lion's Club Park. You can check the book tests that are with the graded papers each Friday to see how much more your child needs to read.
Drivers are still needed for our trip bowling and to Lion's Club Park. Let us know if you can help!
Thanks to everyone for all they have done to support us and our school and make this a great year!
Third and Fourth Grades
The third and fourth grade class is winding down. We are busy at work writing poetry-haiku, shape poems, acrostic poems, couplets, and more. Each student is also making a diorama of a habitat for Science, and is learning about the conditions of many different types of environments. This week, we will complete our Reading books, and we have already finished our English and Science textbooks. Third grade is testing over Social Studies on Thursday of this week. Fourth grade is on the final chapter in Social Studies.
Our trip to Lion’s Club Park is coming up on Tuesday afternoon for all who have completed their AR goals by Monday, May 20th. Keep reading!! You can do it!
We look forward to our Field trip to Mansfield, Missouri this Friday to go visit Laura Ingalls Wilder’s house. A couple of parents are going along with us, and so is Mrs. Golchert. It should be a great day!!! Don’t forget to bring a sack lunch, an extra drink, and some spending cash if you wish to make purchases in the book store.
I have had a wonderful year with my class, and have enjoyed each and every one of them this year. Our small class size allowed us to do many different things and to get to know one another real well. Thank you for sharing your children with me! God has truly blessed us this year.
Don’t forget about Graduation on Tuesday, May 21st and our picnic on the last day. Especially, don’t forget Church and Sunday School this weekend!
In His service,
Grades 5 – 8
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1b
The last week of school is coming up. We will finish up lessons and have tests and be ready for a great summer. Don’t forget to check the calendar on the front page for coming events.
We have really appreciated being here the past two years. We pray that God will continue to bless His work here at Immanuel Lutheran School.
