Keep collecting Box Tops and send them to school with your child. Our PTO turns them in for money to use at our school. The class with the most Box Tops will win a party.

We will have a spelling test on Friday. Study the spelling/phonics words in the homework packet.

We will have a reading comprehension test on Dan's Pet on Thursday. Practice reading the story each night and ask your child questions about the story. The story is included in the homework packet.

Fry words are in the green folder that comes home daily. I have highlighted the ones that your child knows at school. Fry words have to be known by sight within 3 seconds to be marked off. The goal is to know 50 words by the end of the first 9 weeks.
