This week is Unit 3, Week 5. A list of new spelling and vocabulary words, for Unit 3, Weeks 1-5, have been uploaded to the “file manager” link. It is not necessary to print the spelling/vocabulary lists, as the students will have a hard copy in their HORSE binder. However, just in case your child is absent or leaves the folder at school, you know where to look for the words.

 *Spelling test: Students will be tested on only 10 of the 20 assigned words. They will also be required to write 2 sentences using any 2 of the spelling words. Sentences will be graded on capital letter, correct spelling of the word used and punctuation mark.

*Reading homework: Every Monday, I will send home a reading trifold to answer. Students are to read their weekly story, in the Literature Anthology book, and answer the questions. If there is a question your child does not know the answer to and you are unable to help, skip it. We will read the story and go over all the questions in class Wednesday. Remember to bring the book and the questions back on Wed. If your student forgets their book, I have online access setup for each student to be able to read the story online. This also alleviates the need to take the book home. However, students are always free to take home the book if they/you would like.


***Class Wish List:

·        Kleenex and disinfecting wipes :)
