News and Notes

Spelling
Students receive the words at the beginning of the week and are tested on them on Friday. Students should be practicing the spelling words each night - a handout will go home this week on Monday to provide your child with a variety of fun ways to practice the words. Your child will also have a Spelling Homework Packet (it is just 2 pieces of lined paper stapled together), on which he/she will record the spelling activity completed each night. Some activities (such as writing the words in different colors) will be done directly on the page, while others (such as cheering the words to an adult) will require a parent signature to verify that the activity was completed. If you have any questions, please send me an email.

Reading
Please have your child read at least 20 minutes each night (a total of at least 100 minutes each week).
