Welcome Fall,

Students will be coming home Friday, October 3 with some work samples and a letter that they have written to you about news in language arts and reading!

We have successfully completed the first Wordly Wise and Spelling Units.  Next week we will begin Wordly Wise Unit 2.

Our class read aloud is Animal House and Iz.  We are listening for inferencing in the book.  Students are also looking for places where their authors make inferences in their reading books.

Next weeks idiom of the week  = He has butterflies in his stomach.  The word of the week = clarify.
