Spelling Journal – A spelling journal will go home on Monday with 10 words highlighted. Your child will choose one way to practice them each night.

Week in Review
Most students are in a VV or SS group to help them decode words and picture what they’re reading. We started afternoon lessons this week and students will rotate through writing, penmanship, Cloud 9 math, and read aloud lessons each day. We are discussing reflection books and conducting activities to help students set better goals.
