Curriculum Notes

This week's focus in math is word problems with "add to and take from" language. In English Language Arts we are in the theme "Silly Stories" and are working on our short vowel sounds and the idea of fantasy / realism.

We take our spelling pre-tests on Monday. If all the words are spelled correctly, or only one word is missing, a student is assigned List B to study. If two or more words are missed, a student is assigned List A to study at home and in class. Students write their list in their planner (words are also on the back of this newsletter). The test is administered Friday for both tests.
