Writing Rubric

The students have received a "writing rubric" from me as we develop our skills as writers. I want them to know what I am looking for as they write. They keep this rubric in their writing folder to refer back to. I am sending it home to you so that you are aware of this too. So, when they write a paragraph using their spelling words, make sure you get the rubric out so they can check their writing.

Xtra Math

Be looking for a letter on Monday about Xtra Math. We have been using this in the classroom this past week to help us with our math facts. Enjoy using this program at home. We will continue to use it at school as well.
