Memory:  This week we will finish learning the Apostles’ Creed.  We will say the entire Apostles’ Creed on Friday.

Due Wednesday:  He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.  From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.         

Due Thursday:  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.    

Due Friday:  No Memory


We will have a test over Unit 6 on Friday.  Books will be sent home Wednesday and Thursday.  Please make sure your child brings his/her book to school on Thursday for review.

Language Arts: 

This week we will be reading several timelines of historical figures and making our own timeline.  We will not have a reading/vocabulary test on Friday.  We will not have high-frequency words this week either. 

* Students will be able to take AR tests Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday this week. 

Spelling:   This week’s words are review words.  We will be doing activities in class to practice our words, but you will also need to practice at home.

Our Spelling Test will be on Friday.

Also, please remember to do Xtra Math or practice math facts at home.  Homework for the week is…

* Chapel will be Tuesday morning at 8:30.  

* February’s chapel offering is going to Project Feed 500.  It is a program initiated by Orphan Grain Train to feed starving people around the world.  For a cost of about 3 pennies, Orphan Grain Train can send a fortified rice meal to a child in a foreign country.  Our class goal is $35, which would pay for over 1000 meals.
