This Week

We are nearing the mid- term of the first semester. Progress reports will be included with signed papers on Friday, September 17. Can't believe we are here already. The students are doing great. Remember to continue reading and taking AR tests. Many of the books you have on your shelf at home may be Accelerated Reader books. To check a title, go to AR Bookfinder on the internet and then simply type the title and the program will show the test number. Because we are tied to the AR site, students can take the test at school!

Next Week

For the week of September 7-10, we will be reading a trade book. We will read Henry and Mudge the First Book. The Spelling list will be some easily misspelled sight words. There will not be any vocabulary this week. We will have a spelling test on Friday and all students will take an accelerated reader test to go with the story. Have a super Labor Day weekend!
