For word work, we will work as a whole group on two specific spelling rules. New words will not be coming home until after Thanksgiving break.


For reading, we will be exploring non-fiction text and its features such as a table of contents, an index, glossary, bold and italicized print, etc. We will also be finishing up Little House in the Big Woods.
