We have completed our first reading unit. This week we will model and practice taking the theme test on line. This is a long test that will take some endurance. Today went very well once they learned how to login. If ever you want to practice with your child, they do have their login information and I sent it home at the beginning of the year.
We do not have new spelling words. With each theme testing week, at the end of each unit, I will do some reviewing throughout the week of all the words that they have been learning. Then on Friday, I will give a review spelling test. This might be words that they needed to spell for a weekly test, or it might be words that fit the patterns that we have been learning. It is meant to see how many children are strong memorizers for a weekly test and those who are able to apply the spelling strategies and revisit words that we have learned along the way.
Thank you so much for all the Halloween support. The supplies are starting to come in. Please note that Mrs. Lasky has shared the costume expectations via email. The parade information is there as well.
Congratulations to Amjad for losing a tooth today. I know it was a surprise since it happened at recess while playing soccer. But happily, it was a baby tooth.
Enjoy the evening.
