Memory:  This week we will finish learning The Ten Commandments.  The students will need to say the number of the commandment and the commandment.

Due Friday:   10th Commandment: You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, or his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

Language Arts:  This week we will be reading The Great Fuzz Frenzy.   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:  answer, find, its, miss, old, round, then, until, what, young

Vocabulary words: battleground, buzzing, clanking, feud, fit, frenzy, funky, gasped, odd, plumes, recognize, strokes, tumbling, wisps

Spelling:  This week’s words are words with short and long vowels (CVC, VCe) 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.
