We are reading Unit 10 this week. The test will be next Thursday after we return from break.
Please continue to practice your sight words. If your child has reached list 1(Fry) words, I will only be testing on these words on Mon., Wed., and Fri.
Your child can test daily on AR books. Please watch your child's goal. We don't want to wait until the end during IOWA Test week.


The words for this week are didn't, couldn't, weren't, haven't, wouldn't, can't, won't, aren't, don't, and isn't. This test will be next Thursday after the break.
Homework packets are due next week when we come back, so the students can continue to review over the break.
To practice for the IOWA test, you can begin going over sounds with your child. Beginning, middle, and ending sounds.


We will be working on Contractions with not, compound words and comparative adjectives.
