Dear Families,

We are gearing up for another week filled with learning before our February break! On Thursday, we have several grandparents joining us for a fun classroom Valentine activity. Also, NJHS will be selling Valentine lollipops for $1 on Thursday, February 14th. Field trip permission slips and fee are due this Friday, February 15th.

Please remember to check Mrs. William's class page on a weekly basis to stay up-to-date on what's happening in Math, Science, and Religion. You can visit her page by clicking here: Mrs. Williams

Also, please make sure to send a note if there is a change in your child's usual dismissal. Also, students should bring a small, healthy snack and a bottle of water to school. Thank you!

This week, students will begin a new lesson in Journeys. We will be using Lesson 13 "Antarctic Journal: Four Months at the Bottom of the World" as our mentor text as we focus on the sequence of events in a story. Students are continuing to work on inferrential skills in small group work. 

This week, we are wrapping up our Poetry Unit! Students have been working so hard at looking at the world in a new way to create meaningful and creative poems. They have worked on revising and editing their poems using similes, metaphors, alliteration, and personification to name a few skills! Students are working towards publishing their poems so they can share these with you soon!
There is a Spelling Quiz on Friday.

Social Studies:
In Social Studies, we continue to learn about colonial times in New York State. Students are working to understand and analyze the similarities and differences between New Netherland and New York. This week, students will examine what daily life was like in the English colony of New York.
