Week of April 4 - 8

Testing Review Week

This week we will be reviewing test skills. We will be working on reading comprehension, reading rules, and vocabulary. We will also be reviewing phonics rules and rhyming words. I sent home a homework packet today with many different types of activities to help review for the test. Please go over these packets with your child and discuss the instructions with them. The packets are due back on Friday.

Spelling

This weeks words are review words. They are words that are commonly misspelled words. They are because, they, was, have, like, friend, some, of, love and would. The test this week will be a multiple choice style test. You can practice the words with your child by writing it in different ways with only one correct way. Have him/her choose the correct spelling of the word. The test will be on Friday.

ITBS Testing

Next week is the ITBS test. Please make sure your child eats a good breakfast and has plenty of sleep. There will be no homework next week. Please continue to read for AR testing. We will be doing review and AR testing in the afternoon.
