Inshalla all is well. I wanted to take this time to kindly remind parents that students have spelling homework every week! I give the students a whole week plus the weekend to complete the spelling lesson and study for the spelling test. However, many of the students come back to school with this homework incomplete. Students are given plenty of time (6+ days) to complete three pages from their spelling spectrum book. Please help your child manage his/her time accordingly. Encourage your child to do one page everyday or every other day (instead of keeping everything to the last minute). There is a spelling test every Monday!
Topics we have covered in spelling:
Short and long vowel sounds
Words with final double consonants
Words with final /le/ sound
Words ending with the -ed and -ing
words with /oi/ /ou/ /o/ sound
In the meantime, we are still exploring fables!
The students are required to read passages and answer multiple choice and long answers. They are also required to write proper paragraphs on a given topic (i.e. Which method of transportation is the best form).
Tip: The more your child reads, the better his/her writing skills will be. The more a child writes, the better he/she will read.
