The Spelling test will be Friday, October 18th.




I will be sending home a reading story to be read on Monday (No Swimming This Summer).  The students will be tested Friday on this story for listening and reading comprehension.  In addition the students will be given a weekly cold read story.  This is a story where the students will be reading the story and answering the comprehension questions on their own.  The cold read story cannot be sent home to study ahead of time.  The students will read the story, the questions, and the choices on their own. 

Make sure they are reading the fluency story each night to be successful on Friday. 

At home:

Read the reading/listening comprehension story nightly (What Comes Alive at Night).  This week I will be sending home another Wit and Wisdom Fluency homework sheet (Handout Option 10B: Fluency Homework)



In English this week we will be working on Names and Titles of People and Animals

The names of people and animals are proper nouns.  The first and last names of a person or animal begins with a capital letter.

The titles of people begin with a capital letter.  Most titles end with a period.  These are titles of people:

Mrs. Sprat is looking for her dog Fluffy.
