Classroom Notes

Spelling words will be sent home with your child on Fridays.  They will have a packet of work to do, this can be completed at home, at school, or both.  Completing their spelling work will be a part of their grade in spelling, along with our tests each week and activities that we do in the classroom.  Students do not need to complete the entire packet to earn their points, doing 4-5 pages that they select is fine.  However, the more they practice, the better!
