This week will be a word study week. Look for a new list of words next week (Jan 27).
Once students become comfortable with our spelling routines, I'll be creating groups to meet students' needs. Future lists will be different for each group. These groups will be flexible and can change based on students' needs and their progress.
Dates to Remember:
- 1/19 MLK Day, no school
- 1/26 No school for students
- 2/6 9:20-2:00pm field trip to Kensington Park - chaperones needed
