We are currently learning our place in the galaxy.  Each child has started a large poster by drawing the sun as the center.  Today, your child learned about solar flares, sun spots, and the massive amount of energy the sun produces.  These kids are so well organized and are able to comprehend higher level concepts.  Way to go, kids!

A spelling list and vocabulary packet will be sent home with your child every Monday. We will not have spelling the first week of school.  The spelling/vocabulary packet is due on or before Friday. On Wednesday, the class will take a pretest and it will be graded and sent home on Wednesday.  If your child misses one word or less on the pretest, they do not need to take the final test on Friday.  The higher of the two test scores will be recorded.
