Halloween Weekly News

Dear Families,

It’s going to be an especially exciting week what with Halloween, a new classmate, and a new hamster! We’re going to have to practice some deep breathing exercises!

Here’s the learning plan:

  • Reading: Rereading nonfiction for important details
  • Writing: Revision, elaborating on our nonfiction topics
  • Math: Area concepts, multiplication
  • Language Arts: Spelling, Vocabulary
  • Social Studies: Christopher Columbus
  • Read Aloud: Peter Pan

Spelling Words

List 1:
prepay preview misplaced overjoy
preschool misunderstood mismatch oversize

List 2:
overloaded overeager mispronounce precooked
overcrowded overactive misbehave prerecorded

Please consider using the following vocabulary words in your conversations this week:

cylinder, examine, fatal, feature, grasp, jet, marine, scar, tentacle, vessel


Please keep your child away from Halloween candy in the morning before the school day begins! Trust me…a little candy can wreak havoc in a classroom! 🙂

Now that the weather has turned chilly, be sure your child comes to school with a warm jacket. We go out for recess every day, unless it is rainy.

ITBS test scores went home with your child Friday, so look in your child’s folder if you haven’t see it yet.

Have a fun week!

Fondly, Mrs. Pennington
