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

Students have been super busy collecting money for the Boosterthon.  As of this morning, my homeroom had $25/lap raised.  We are very close to the $30 level as a class, which is a classroom surprise snack provided by me.  If the school raises $20,000, the principals will dress as queens and get pied in the face.  Let's keep making those donations!

Tomorrow is the Fun Run.  Students are encouraged to wear sweatpants and the field trip shirt.  If a student doesn't dress for the Fun Run, they must be in dress code school approved clothes.  NO JEANS!  The Fun Run will take place in the afternoon for 4th grade.

Monday is the PBIS reward.  If a student has earned all 4 stamps, they may dress down for the day.  Jeans, sweatpants, Spartan t-shirt, or dress code clothing.

Valentine's Day party is Friday February 9th, beginning at 2pm.  Students may bring in Valentines to share with their classmates.  If a treat is being sent in, please be sure it is store bought.  We will be provid…

This week we are reading Adelina's Whales which is fiction.  It is an amazing story about the gray whale and human contact.  Students worked on their vocabulary in their interactive notebooks.  If they didn't finish in class, they should finish at home.  Adelina's Whales also uses fact/opinion to organize the story.  Students in periods 1 & 2 have worksheets to complete on f/o and multiple meaning words.

In grammar, we will begin helping and main verbs.  Students are still struggling with verbs, so please encourage your child to find the verb in any written material.  Test will be Monday March 12.
