Weekly Update

Mrs. Wenberg's 4th Grade Class

Next Week's Spelling Words:

We are changing our spelling focus for the last portion of the school year. We will be concentrating on how students can improve spelling skills to help with their abilities as readers and writers. We will be working on spelling skills in WIN time based on each student's needs. Students may bring home spelling work, but will not have weekly assignments going forward. Please have a conversation with your student about spelling "high-frequency words" correctly in their daily writing.

You can find a list of these words below.
