First Grade News

Week of March 16 - 20

Reading

We began Unit 4 today. We will read the story tomorrow and review Wednesday. Since we have a short week this week, we will have a short test on Thursday. It will be just review of the story. Please continue to read your AR books and test. Don't wait until the end of the nine weeks.

Spelling

The words for unit 4 are coming, they, come, our, put, call, saw, crawl, yawn, and small. We will take a practice test on Thursday, if your child does good on it, I will use it as their test grade for this unit. If they don't do very good on the practice test, I will give it on Tuesday afternoon of next week. I don't want this unit to drag out for three weeks. We will not have any homework next week.

Grammar

We will be reviewing Capitalizing, punctuation, and sentence expression and usage this week to prepare for next weeks test. Homework review in the packet.

Reminders
