This Week's Homework

May Reading Log.

Please work on multiplication facts. **Our timed tests will be daily now!

Practice and study the 10 Hundred spelling list. We've almost made it to 1000! Our LAST SPELLING TEST OF THE YEAR is this Friday!

Spelling Homework

Keep practicing the 10th Hundred! In order to help your child be a success, please feel free to try any spelling strategies you'd like. You can have them write their words multiple times, speed read the words while you time them, rainbow write their words, create a word search online using the words, or have them try another strategy that has been successful in the past. I'm not particular with what you do to help them, but I encourage you to work with them daily on their words.
