Weekly RoAR!!

What's happening in Mrs. Stewart's class?

Week of November 14th

Hello families!!

Field Trip:

Our field trip is fast approaching! Please make sure your child brings his/her lunch box if you have elected them to eat that for lunch. They also need to wear their 2nd grade Dodd shirts. Since we are eating lunch at a park after the exhibit, and Texas weather is unpredictable I would suggest sending a small jacket with your child just in case it's chilly outside.


Donations:

My pencils seem to have begun to grow legs, and are walking out of my class. My erasers are also being eaten (yuck) so if you are able to send some pencils to class that would be greatly appreciated.

Spelling

Spelling Rule: Inflectional ending “ing”.
We will not be changing the base word.

(speaking, brushing)

Word Wall Words: turn, hurt, work, won, one


In class, we will go over examples that follow the rule. They will be tested on 4 words from that list, and 6 additional words that the ELAR teachers brainstormed. They will be tested on the word wall words that are specifically in their planners, and that will be consistent each week.

Unfortunately, we do not do redo's on spelling grades at this time.
