Dec. 12-13th

Sorry for the late post. Last week we had new carpet installed in our classroom so things have been a little busy. We are trying to finish up our Space Booklets this week. The story we are working on for Reading is called One Riddle. We will do our Vocabulary Test on Thursday (Dec. 14th). There is no Spelling Test this week. The students will receive a new set of words tomorrow (Dec. 13th) and the Spelling Test will be on Wednesday (Dec. 20th).

Due to carpeting being installed and the holidays coming up we had to make a couple of changes to the Spelling Tasks. Here is what Spelling Groups will look like for the next few weeks;

Dec. 13th: New sort, no test

Dec. 20th: Spelling Test, no new sort

Jan. 3rd: New Spelling sort, no test

Jan. 10th: Back to doing the Spelling Test and new sort.

Nov. 30 – Dec. 6th

Our next story is called Stone Soup. We will start reading this story on Friday. The Vocabulary Words for Stone Soup can be found on the Vocabulary Unit 3 page.  Our next Vocabulary and Spelling test will be on Dec. 6th.

The weather will soon be changing. Please remind your child to bring a warm jacket, gloves, and hat so he/she can be warm outside at recess.
