I informed the kids that we will still have a test on vocabulary and spelling tomorrow.  I am not going to collect the yellow packet until Monday…that way they can finish it up if they forgot to take it home earlier this week.

There are three Flocabulary assignments due on March 1st.

In the Reading Zone Journal your child should have finished days 1-5…please check in with them to make sure they are keeping up with this each day.

Read-a-thon is in full swing…keep tracking those minutes and getting those pledges!

Tomorrow is the last day for Box Top collection for this week’s collection contest…send in any Box Tops you have any time….but this week it is part of a contest!

My math class, Student Book page 142 due tomorrow.


Happy Valentine’s Day and Long Weekend

Parents, thank you for all your support of your child as well as the thoughtfulness you show towards myself.  I loved conferencing with those who desired to meet and felt so wonderful, tired, but wonderful each night heading home after meeting with such great people.  Enjoy this PLANNED four day weekend with your loved ones, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Miss Barthel

PS Don’t forget, we have a Read-a-Thon going on, keep the kids reading…plus when they are driving you nuts this weekend it is a good tool to pull out! 😉


Ms Molette starts tomorrow, she is going to be student teaching in our room through the end of May!

Reading packets are due Friday. Tests for spelling and Greek Latin are due Friday. We are on day 2 of our new Reading Zone Journal. We have 3 Flocabulary assignments on our iPads.

Tomorrow is book fair shopping day, only kids with money will be allowed to go in to the book fair, the rest of us will be reading. 🙂

My math class Home Connections pages 69-70 due tomorrow.

If your child’s planner didn’t look filled in to the usual standard it is because our document camera is not working. Hopefully it will get fixed ASAP.

Have a great night and safe driving!
