Wow!  1st month of 2017 is behind us already!  Where is the time going?

Spelling list 12 test was today.  Students had to know the meaning and spelling of the words this week because they were homophones (their, there, they're).  Continue looking for other homophones in your reading and improve your vocabulary.  Next spelling test will be February 13, list 13.

Grammar:  We will continue working with verbs, learning the difference between helping and main verbs.  I always tell the students Herring is better than Moyer that is why H for helping verb is 1st in a sentence!  Just a way for them to try and remember.  Test will be next Friday.

Reading:  We will be reading Adelina's Whales.  This is a great, non fiction story between a young girl and the whales.  Students have already been studying the vocabulary words.  We will also be working on words with more than one meaning.  Test will be next Friday.

Wednesday is a data delay, so students will have a 2 hour delay.
Friday is the Valentine's Day party.  PTO approved parents may come in for 2pm.

Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Herring

This week is the start of Red Ribbon Week, and it will run through Tuesday, October 31.

Students may show their school spirit on Wednesday by dressing up in NS clothes.  Thursday they may wear their favorite team shirt/jersey.  Friday they may wear jeans before changing into their Halloween costume.  Please remember to follow dress code, but still have fun.

Friday the parade will start at 2pm and will find its way to the high school stadium.  Classroom parties will follow.  4th grade has collected $5/student to help defray the cost of snacks.  If you haven't sent yours in, please do so.  Students may also bring in candy/snacks, but remember it must be store bought.

Our spelling test will be Thursday on list 4.  Students took a pre-test yesterday, and have had the list since last Friday.  On the flip side is list 5, so please do not throw it away.

In grammar, we are learning compound sentences, which is a continuation of subjects and predicates.  Students MUST know how to find the …
