Greetings from Mrs. Leagan

Hello Everybody,

This weekend started out busy as my husband and I went furniture shopping in Chattanooga. Then, we enjoyed the comforts of our home as the rain and winds picked up followed by the cold and blustery conditions. I hope you and your family saw the rare lunar eclipse known as a super blood wolf moon last night, in which sunlight passed through Earth’s atmosphere and lit the celestial body and turned the moon red. Today, we are honoring a man who was courageous in teaching human rights which will be important today and always. Our weekend has been all about history, astronomy and science, and we are not in school. Learning just never ends.

This morning, I did work on my lesson plans even though it may be a day off from school, and the rest of January will be quite busy as we near the end of our novel study, grammar Unit 5, and begin the research paper. Here are some dates that you want to be aware of for the rest of this month.

Tuesday, January 22 – Begin the research paper. Thanks for having all of the supplies needed to make this in-class writing project easier for your student’s organizational needs.

Wednesday, January 23 – math-help session

Thursday, January 24 – Begin vocabulary card quiz in class – Students will partner with another student and complete this quiz in class which means no study guide.

Sunday, January 27 – 2:00-4:00 Wood Acres’ Open House Please come and see all that happens in 5th grade and at Wood Acres next year.

Friday, January 25 from 3:00-4:00 – Jekyll Island meeting in Mrs. Leagan’s classroom. I have all you need to be informed of all that happens during this great field trip. Hope to see you there.

Friday, January 25 – Grammar Quiz over Lessons 35-39

Tuesday, January 29 – Spelling test and Reading quiz over Chapters 9-12

I believe that is all for now. Keep warm, enjoy the rest of this Monday, and I’ll see you soon.

Yours truly,
Cheryl Leagan
4th grade lead teacher
