We had a great first two days back last week,and I enjoyed meeting all your students. We will begin our curriculum this week with nightly homework on spelling, vocabulary, math, and reading log. There will be a spelling and vocabulary test on Friday, along with a comprehension assessment. We will also begin our science and social studies lessons. Mrs. Moore will cover social studies and I will teach science. I will list the homework every day on this web-site along with the weekly spelling and vocabulary with the definitions. The students have a spelling and vocabulary list in their folders and a reading log that needs to completed nightly. Any questions, feel free to email me any time. Have a great week!
