Fresh grade and projects

I hope everyone had a great Christmas break! I signed everyone up for Freshgrade before the holidays, I hope you had a chance to check it out, I will be adding sound recordings, videos and photos to your child's account in January, watch for updates! I marked the Winter booklets and Social Studies projects over the break, and most students did an amazing job on their work!

Spelling

The spelling this first week back will be individual word lists. I chose 10 misspelled words from each student's writing that I marked over the break, and made individual word lists. They will have them written in their agendas on Monday to study and do word work with over the week. I won't be here on Friday, so the test will be on Monday , January 11th. The next set of words will be back to Words their Way, and the next will be word wall words. If you need reminders on ideas on how to work on words, check under newsletters in my website. www.mrsfk.weebly.com

VIP for January and February

For the next session of VIP (remember to check on the calendar for your child's name) I would like them to bring in something to share that can fit in a small box (about the size of a kleenex box). The other students will ask questions to guess what is in the box, and when it is guessed they can show it to the class.
