Change in Spelling Words
I have decided to change the way we currently do spelling. Our spelling curriculum was taking over 45 minutes to complete (4 groups with all different words that had to be sorted) each week. Therefore from now on, all students will have the same spelling words. I will choose words from our curriculum, frequently misspelled words from our writing, and words that might be used on tests/SOL assessments. Please continue to help your child with their spelling and vocabulary as well as reading each night. Thank you!!!
We are particpating in the Book It! program by Pizza Hut from October until March. Students are required to read at least 20 minutes each night (Monday - Thursday) and record it in their reading log. They must have their reading log signed by an adult! Students will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut if they read the required amount for the entire month.
Congratulations to Caleb, Katie, Vaishnavi, Jon, Noelani and Daniela for reading EVERY Monday-Thursday night for the month of October! Keep up the great work!!!

Box Tops for Education
Don't forget this year to send in your box tops for education! We earn money for the school to be used to buy books for the classrooms! Please trim around each box top and send them in a plastic baggie. Thanks so much!!!
The weekly spelling lists for each color group are located in this folder. Each child has a colored star sticker on their spelling notebook which is the color of their spelling group.
Students need to study one word each night and give me the word/definition in the morning. This counts as part of their nightly homework so please help them study!
