- identifying the story resolution
We will be working on Sort 21 which is short i vowel. Please remember to have your child practice their spelling words using the Spelling City website https://www.spellingcity.com/gayman/. Please look for Sort 21 for this week's words.
This Week's Homework
For your reference I will be posting the homework each week on our newsletter. Please keep in mind that sometimes I will need to change the homework, because we might not get through everything that I want to cover and I will need to change it. I will send an email if I have to do that. The children will still be copying the homework each day in thier homework books.
