October Reminders

October is a BUSY month which includes 6 early release days and conference week. Please check the blog, email, remind, and dojo often as reminders will come frequently this month. Conference forms are coming home tomorrow, 10/4 and need to be returned ASAP so that we can accommodate any schedule conflicts.


Information for Spelling

I have decided that giving different groups pretest each week on Monday, will allow me to see who actually needs to study their words over the course of the week. I gave the first one today and 4 students were given the week off from spelling. This will not always be the case, some weeks students might be moved to a more advance group if they did well on the pretest. I wanted to share this information in case your child comes home without spelling words. We will also begin using spelling city within the classroom so some weeks test may all be electronic versus other weeks being pencil/paper.
