Saints are busy preparing for our CCA Christmas Program. Our program will be presented on Thursday, December 18. All Faithfulness saints are playing the role of Kings, and need costumes to represent these characters. Costumes should be at school by Monday, December 15. We hope you’ll invite family and friends to this amazing performance!
Division has been giving some saints a difficult time! Like multiplication, there is a process to solving division problems. Students must divide, multiply, subtract, and bring down. These steps may need to be performed several times before the problem is completely solved. There are many ways to remember these steps. Students have been doing a little “rapping” as one way to remember them. Another way to recall the steps is through this question: Does (divide) McDonald’s (multiply) Sell (subtract) Burgers (bring down)? To help, have your saint explain the steps to you as they solve homework and ixl assignments.
In spelling, the Green Team will be using spelling patterns and vowel sounds to determine how to break words into syllables. New list words are introduced on Mondays. It would be helpful to have your saint read these words to you on Monday night before they cut them out and sort them according to their pattern. Written practice is assigned for classwork and homework. The Word Choice assignments are completed in saints’ Word Work notebooks. These notebooks are collected each Friday. You will notice a change in the testing format with the Sort 11 words. No spelling will be given during the week of December 15 – 19.
Our Bible lessons are taking us into the book of Matthew. Our Bible verse, Matthew 6:19-21, talks about the type of treasures we have. Often, we want more, more, more – especially during this gifting season when we are frequently asked, “What do you want for Christmas?” However, all too often we forget how “rich” we already are! God has called us to be His children. He promises to provide all that we need. Pray that we will “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” (Matthew 6:33)
In closing, thank you for all that you do in ensuring your child’s preparation and readiness for class each day!
