We will be taking a test on the sacrament of Reconciliation on Thursday. A study guide will come home on Tuesday.
This week’s poem is “The Owl, the Snake, the Grouch, and the Children Greet the Snow”. Please read aloud 3 times, get it signed, and return by Friday.
Fluency homework is due on Friday.
This week we will begin the -5 facts. We will begin doing 3-digit subtraction with borrowing on Tuesday. I highly recommend doing at least part of the homework each night to make sure that you understand the concept of the day. Please let me know if you would like extra practice sheets for your child.
Unit 6 – Go to vocabularyworkshop.com for activities that go along with the words. We will have our test next Friday.
Black History Month Presentations
Hopefully everyone is hard at work on their project! Below you will find the schedule for presenting. Your child does not need to bring their poster until the day it is due. Please remember to practice the presentation with your child. I suggest that you have your child make notecards. Reading from the project paper can be difficult and makes it hard for the students to remember to make eye contact. If your child is having a hard time with a part of the presentation, skip it!!! I would much rather have each child speak clearly and understandably with a shorter presentation, than do a long presentation that is difficult to understand. The students need to be learning from each other! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended You,
and I detest all my sins because
of Your just punishment.
But most of all because they offend You,
my God, who are all good and
deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace,
to sin no more,
and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
