December 12th Weekly Newsletter
The second paper that came home was a yellow sight word list. These are the 50 words we will test on Tuesday, December 16th. Students need to be able to read all 50 words in 2.5 minutes. Thank you for working so hard over the quarter on the weekly sight words; it will pay off on the final test! :)
