Congratulations to those students at 40% of their AR goal!
Students need to be at 50% by Friday, November 20, 2015.
**Please remind your child that if they are not at 40% by Monday, November 16th, they will owe me last recess until they get to 40% of their goal. I want to see each student in my class earn the reward and treat this nine weeks!
Vocabulary Words - list #14
Spelling List for next week - Week #14
*Something new - your child will need to know the definition of each prefix or suffix for the Friday test!
If your child makes the AMAZING list, they will be required to do different spelling work with the new list. This may appear differently in the gradebook, so if you see a blank for a spelling activity, that would be why.
