Candy Cane Poem

Look at the Candy Cane

What do you see?

Stripes that are red

Like the blood shed for me

White is for my Savior

Who’s sinless and pure!

“J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!

Turn it around

And a staff you will see

Jesus my shepherd

Was born for Me!


    During the month of December, although students will be excited about the Christmas Season we will be busy learning many new things.  We ask for your cooperation in helping us keep your child focused on their work.

     In religion we will be concentrating on the season of Advent and the Birth of Jesus.  We will discuss how we prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ.

In English Language Arts we will be working on our second unit.  Students will be reading a variety of genres which will assist with skills and strategies including cause and effect, theme, compare and contrast, author’s purpose and understanding. We will incorporate our grammar skills in our writing which will involve plural nouns, writing quotations, subject-verb agreement, and verb tenses.

    In math students will begin to understand multiplication and division concepts.  Representing multiplication through repeated addition, use of a number line and arrays will assist students in their understanding of multiplication and division.

    In science students will continue to learn about forms of energy and how energy can change from one form to another.  They will also learn about light, sound and electrical energy. This will help students understand how energy is used.

    In social studies students will learn that the environment and climate affect where people live and that their actions can affect the environment in positive and negative ways.

    We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

"Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!"
- Humbert Wolfe
The change in the season brings cooler temperatures, brilliant fall colors, and a settling into the
school year. Thank you for making the first month of school a pleasant and smooth transition
for the students.
We are continuing with our first unit in English Language Arts, which is focusing on
comprehension skills and strategies. We will develop understanding of different types of
sentences as well as learning how to expand sentences when writing. The writing process is an
intricate part of writing. Students will begin learning and recognizing different parts of speech.
Math classes will concentrate on learning that place value helps to estimate and find sums of
3-digit numbers. They will learn about the commutative, associative and identity property of
addition.
In Social Studies students will learn how natural resources are used and understand how
people affect the environment. Students will also recognize how and why people protect the
environment.
Our Science objectives for this month will concentrate on patterns to predict future motion and
to identify forces acting on an object.
Students are learning that we show love for God by loving others at home, at school, and in our
neighborhood. Jesus taught us to pray to God as a loving Father. Students are recognizing
that all Christians are brothers and sisters in Christ.
Please remember to check the calendar and school website for important information. We
thank you for your cooperation and assistance. May October be an enjoyable month for the
students.
