2nd Grade News

Ms. Parker's 2nd Grade ~ September 7-11, 2015

LABOR DAY (September 7th) ~ NO SCHOOL


Students took the Spelling Pre-Test for last Friday using the words from the Regular Lists. If your child spells all the words correctly (not including the bonus word), I sent home the challenge list for them to study. Spelling tests are on Fridays.

The Spelling City website is a good tool to help your child study their spelling words. They can take practice tests, review the words, and play games. There is also a free app that can be downloaded.
