Kraft Class Update
The Mousetrap Machine Show
Reading: Super Kids
The memory words are oh, any, day, good, very, and want. Please practice spelling these words correctly, as well as reading these words with ease at home. The sound spelling pattern is the “sneaky e” that makes the vowel sound in the middle of the word say its name (cake, these, bike, bone, flute).
*A packet of activities that connect to this week’s skills was sent home in Friday Folders. Enjoy!
While reading with your children every night, please discuss/point out memory words, spelling patterns, and ask them questions about the book they read.
We are nearing the end of our Informative Writing Unit. At the end of every unit the students take one story they are extremely proud and “publish” their work by adding a colorful title page. Next week we will write one last teaching book that I will collect to assess their growth in informative writing.
Please send box tops to school. Thank you for your support!
A new reading log went home today (inside Friday Folder). If your child forgot to turn their log in, please send it to school on Monday.
