Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of May 2nd

A Note from Mrs. Myerson

This weeks spelling words do not focus on a spelling skill, but focus on Compound Words (two separate words put together to make one word). This will be a challenging week because these words are difficult! Be sure to double up on the studying this week!

Parents, as the weather gets warmer and the year winds down, this is the time when student behavior declines. The expectations in my classroom are still the same however: follow the rules and do your best. Please emphasize this with your child. We have special events and class trips coming up so we want everyone to be able to participate!
