On our spelling tests, words with letters that are reversed or that are formed incorrectly will be marked wrong. For example, if the word is tall and the t stops at the dotted line, then it will be marked wrong. Students have an alphabet chart on their desks to use and are reminded to double check their letters throughout the test. We have been working really hard to use correct and neat handwriting these past few weeks. As students practice their words at home, please make sure they are forming their letters correctly and fixing any reversals.
Students took their first timed test for their addition facts. If they earned a 90% or more then they will bring home the next level of flashcards. We will work our way from +1s all the way to +10s. Flashcards should come back to school every day in their home folder.
It’s Teamwork Spirit Week!
