Phonics…what used to be known as spelling!

Each week we will focus on a particular letter pattern. The purpose of these lessons is for your child to become familiar with how to decode and correctly spell the words that follow the letter pattern.

Each Friday students will have a spelling test. The spelling test is not a set of words, but rather words that use the letter pattern. Each week you will be able to find the letter pattern on our website by finding first grade.

Spring Is On Its Way!!

Please really pay attention to the weather in the morning as you send your child out the door. These spring months can be tricky for deciding how to dress your child for the day. We do go out for recess unless it is raining or below zero. The playground is very muddy and wet during this time of year. You will want to send boots with your child. Even though it feels warm to us, your child will still need a coat. It can be very windy our on the playground, which makes it a little chilly.
