Mrs. Nummela’s Class
March 16, 2018
Thank you to all of the parents that attended the Art Museum Field Trip yesterday! It sounds like the class had a great time, and it was fun to hear them talking about their favorite paintings and sculptures when they returned to school!
I hope that all of your have a wonderful Spring Break! Remember that we will not have school from March 19th-23rd for Spring Break and March 30th and April 2nd for Easter Break. If your child will be missing school before or after these breaks please let me know.
During my maternity leave, know that Ms. Shafer will be checking my CCLS email account as well as her own. You can also always contact Mrs. Moreland in the office and she will pass along messages too. Here is Ms. Shafer’s contact information. You can reach her at email@example.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jesus was betrayed by his disciple, Judas, on Thursday and died on Friday. A criminal was not usually buried except if he had a close relative. A man named Joseph and another named Nicodemus asked to bury Jesus. Both of these men were secret believers who stepped out in
faith to offer this special service of love. Through this act , we learn the meaning of JUSTICE, “God’s power for You to do the right thing” On Sunday, the day we call Easter, Jesus was no longer in the grave! He had Risen! He defeated death and the devil for us and all believers.
Next week we will complete many Easter related activities in class as we look to celebrate this special holiday!
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies.”
Your child’s differentiated Spelling study list will be sent home on Monday. Since it will be a short week, the test will be on Thursday. If you misplace your child’s list during the week, remember that you can find it on Spelling City.
Next week’s spelling rule is:
Digraphs kn, ph, and ck
Next week’s sentences are:
1. I know her phone number.
2. I hit my knee on the knob!
Next week, we’ll be working on subtracting 10 from a number, and identifying a dozen and a half-dozen.
In Reading we’ll be voting for books for the March Madness Book Competition. We’ll also finish looking at books by our March Author, Dr. Seuss.
Please return your child’s books bag on Monday, March 26th. We’ll then send it home Monday afternoon with a new set of stories and poems. Please remember to send back the sheet that is included each time. Let me know the level of difficulty that your child experienced. Thanks for your support!
