What is Quizlet?

Quizlet is a learning tool for students to study vocabulary. Students can learn the words and definitions of the words I've selected for the week before they complete the Spelling City assignments.

Spelling/content vocabulary

Spelling Test will be replaced by Content Vocabulary Test. The words listed are words students will come across in 4th grade level books. Reading comprehension breaks down when students see words and have no idea of their meaning. Most students are now reading on 4th grade level and need to be taught these words. If they use the flashcards on quizlet, it will provide them a good study tool. The flashcards from the previous weeks are available as a download on my website. If you would like your child to retake a Voc. Test, they may study the cards and we will find time this week to let them retest. If you would like me to print the cards for you, I would be happy to do that!

1. Study the reading vocabulary flashcards #5 on quizlet. The link is:

There will be a test over these words on Friday.

2. After you have studied the words on quizlet, then complete the 4 assignments on Spelling City. The name of the assignment on Spelling City is Reading Content Set 4.

Science

We entered our endangered animal poems in the contest sponsored by the Library Association. It is inspiring to have each student send their work out into the world!
