HOMEWORK FOR THIS WEEK

KEY TERMS FOR UNIT 1 FLOCABULARY

SPELLING WORDS FOR THIS WEEK. TEST ON FRIDAY!
WHY LEARN TO SPELL NUMBER WORDS?
OPEN HOUSE and PARENT CONFERENCES
If you were not able to attend Open House, I have sent home a Conference Form which needs to be filled out as soon as possible. My goal is to meet with each parent prior to the last day in October. I f your child has a PEP, I will be asking you to come in sooner, rather than later in order to discuss and sign PEP paperwork.
FINAL NOTE OF THANKS!
If at any time you have ANY questions about how or why I am doing something or think that my expectations are too high, or too low for your child, I ask that you text or call me so we can meet and discuss your concerns.
I do set my expectations high because I believe that if you tell a child they can do it and you believe in them then they will reach their potential.
