January 25-29

Dear Parents,

It was a short week due to the surprise snow day!  I hope that you were able to spend a fun-filled day at home!  Thank you to all that came out to sing at Chapel of the Cross on Sunday!  It was also a special weekend for one of our classmates James, who was baptized!  Welcome to God’s family!!!

Information for next week:

-Special dress up days next week for Lutheran Schools’ Week!  Check out the home page of Sycamore to see all the fun ways we can celebrate attending a great Lutheran school!

-3rd grade field trip coming up:  I am looking for some chaperones to ride on the bus for our next field trip to the St. Louis Symphony.  We will leave at 8:15 on Feb. 23rd and return before lunch time.  If you are able to chaperone, please email me by next Friday.  Thanks!

Reading:  Finish up our class novel of Stone Fox, working on showing evidence for predictions, characters, settings.  We will work on retelling and also context clues.  Questions to ask your child when they are reading:  What character trait did your character show?  How do you know that?  What do you think will happen next?  What is your guess based on?
