Language Arts:   

This week we will be reading Going Places.  We will have a test over the skills that go along with our story on Friday.  I am also going to include a list of our weekly high-frequency words and vocabulary words.  We will be going over these words in class several times during the week. Your child should be able to read all of the high-frequency words and know the meanings of the vocabulary words.  They should be able to use the vocabulary word in a sentence, tell what it means, or act it out. The vocabulary words will be in a section of our reading test, and I will have them read the high-frequency words to me on Friday (for a grade).  

* Students will be able to take AR tests Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week. 

High-Frequency Words:  below, both, follow, most, move, own, road, show, window, yellow

Vocabulary words: affection, assured, contraption, creaking, exactly, glinted, intent, peered, precise, replica, respond, straining, tangle

Spelling:   This week’s words are words with long o (o, oa, ow) and review words.  We will be doing activities in class to practice our words, but you will also need to practice at home.

Our Spelling Test will be on Friday.

  ❄It’s starting to get cold outside!  And for that reason, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) will be collecting coats, hats, earmuffs, scarves, gloves, and mittens for our November chapel mission.  Items collected will be taken to the Jackson Co. Clothing Center. We will have collection boxes in the main hallways at LC.  Please have your child bring in any new or gently used coats, hats, mittens, gloves, etc. for those who are less fortunate.  Any monetary gifts collected will be put toward purchasing more hats and gloves. Thanks so much for your support in this effort. ❄
