Good morning all,
I adapted slightly our ELA homework packet for the week to include a short paragraph related to our story and research that we will be doing this week. Students received the same instructions in class so everyone should be all set. If not, please see the following and don't be afraid to reach out. Especially for this assignment I would recommend spacing out the workload of the paragraph (a few sentences at a time) so it does not become overwhelming.
Just a few highlights from our folders this week
Below you will find this weeks The Horned Toad Prince (test day 9/27) and next weeks Letters Home from Yosemite (test day 10/4) spelling lists. You will find that your child has these in their homework packet for the week, but just in case it goes missing, or the dog ate the homework here are the lists. I have seen a big improvement from our first spelling test to this past weeks. :)
I hope you are all having a great week. I just want to highlight a few things that are going home in the folders this week:
As always let us know if you have any questions and please look our for the Friday weekly update.
Ms. G and Ms. Trahan
This week in the take home Tuesday folders are a few important things:
-School lunch payment information
-Club offerings this year (Lego club and crocheting club-with our own Ms. Trahan)
-A lot of class work and homework, both math and ELA.
-School picture day order forms! (September 20th)
Here is a quick update about weekly spelling tests for ELA vocabulary. We will introduce the words on Mondays and review throughout the week practice in order to be ready for our Friday spelling tests. There will be 20 words each week and 5 challenge words. The challenge words will only benefit the student and not harm their scores. We will not work on the challenge words during the week as they are intended as a challenge! One homework a week will be a cursive handwriting sheet with the spelling words in order to reinforce our work in school. Additional studying should be initiated at home.
Below are this weeks words if you would like to get started in advance!
