This week we will explore r-controlled vowels.  Even though (er) is used a bit more than (ir) and (ur),  there is not a clear rule for these r-controlled vowels.  Therefore, we are giving you the words this week.  Study!  Study!

Focus: er, ir, ur

Words:  her, verb, sister, under, bird, first, third, birthday, hurt, turn

Red Words:  These words will be on the test.  (before, does, need, said, any)

7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfast - The Bold Adventurer

Friday, February 7 • Breakfast served at 7:00am

Breakfast: $5 for Chick-Fil-A Chicken Minis and Coffee, Orange Juice, or Milk

Sign-Up

 

For Grades: 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son, or we can discuss another option.
