Week of 8-22-16

We begin our reading series and our regular schedule this week.  We will have spelling tests and a fill-in-the-blank test using spelling words on Thursdays.  The computer reading test on our story, vocabulary test, and grammar test will be on Friday.  We go over the vocabulary words every day in class, but please study them with them at home also.  We go to the library on Wednesdays at 10:55 so please make sure your child brings their book to school on that day.
