Box Tops!!

The new competition has started! Congrats to Mrs. Wooten for winning the first competition!

We are collecting Box Tops this year! We are not sending home sheets to tape them on this year, instead we would like you to put 50 in a baggie and label them "Richardson." Thanks so much!!

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

Vocabulary words

Look in your child's HW folder on Monday for their vocabulary words. For some reason I am having issues with my Canvas vocabulary button. I'll print off a copy for this week.

Spelling List for next week - Week #14

We will take a pre-test each Monday morning. If your child passes the regular list words, they will be put on the AMAZING word list for the week and test on Thursday.

*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.
