We will spend the next two weeks on the same set of spelling words. The test will be on the last day before Winter Break-- Friday, December 21st. Students now glue their sorts in their Word Study notebooks on Fridays, so please ensure the words come back to school.

The Word Wall Test is on Thursday, as usual. We will not have any new Word Wall words next week. Please continue to review all words at home.

Please send a quick, healthy snack that allows for easy clean up to school with your child. We take no longer than five minutes for snack time. I notice that some students are throwing away uneaten snacks. Please talk with your child about not wasting food. Thank you!

In Reading and Writing, we have been discussing similes--comparing two unlike items using the words "like" or "as." Ask your child why writers use similes in their writing.
