Spelling city assignments have been posted for the week :)

Sorry about last week! If ever you find that there are no assignments posted... please choose whatever activities you like ... using the current week's spelling words. I can see all activities that students do, even it they are not assignments. (Even when there are assignments you can still do other activities as well, if you like.)

Homework this week:

Read the weekly story each night


Monday - Language Sheet - Write spelling words 3x each OR Spelling City

Tuesday - Math Sheet -Sentences with first 5 spelling words OR Spelling City

Wednesday - Language Sheet - Sentences with last 5 words OR Spelling City

Thursday - Math Sheet - Put spelling words in alphabetical order OR Spelling City

Friday - No Homework! Have a great weekend!


So far, I don't think anyone has had a need for the homework sheets that I had been posting on here. So, to save time and space.... If for some reason you don't have the homework one night and need to get it, just message me and I will get it posted for you.
