I have already posted grades for the first vocabulary/spelling test I gave on Friday. Please feel free to log onto Parent Portal and check your child’s current grades.

If you want to get started early on this week’s vocabulary words, they can be found on this web site under Week 2.

Next week, since it’s a four day week, we won’t have any vocabulary words.

Writing Pieces August 18, 2014

Here’s the writing piece that we are currently working on. Today your child was supposed to write a stream-of-consciousness story. Just write and tell her story with a beginning, middle and end. It could be fiction or true. Later this week we will be turning that story into a piece of narrative poetry. Remember “Paul Revere’s Ride”? That’s a good example of narrative poetry. It tells a story, but it doesn’t have to rhyme.

If your child wants to work on this at home with your help (and type it as well), that is fine with me. We hope to write and revise our poems this Friday.

Your child will still need to turn in a reading paragraph by 12/20, but I will not have vocabulary words that week. We’ll resume with them after Christmas break.
