Dear Parents: Happy summer! I pray that you and your wonderful children have a summer filled with fun, safety, health, and happiness.
Thank you so much for the generosity and thoughtfulness you showed through your cards and gifts. You are too good to me!
Enjoy many events this summer with your children and I will see you in September.
As a team, we can help each child succeed this year.
Please note: Spelling tests occur on Fridays this year.
* For spelling we use the Dolch Word Lists. The Dolch words are the most common English words used in reading.
* Your child must learn to read and spell every word.
* Each child should be able to read the whole list within one minute by the end of each term.
* The complete list of words will be sent home. If you do not have a copy please send me a note so I can provide one.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING YOUR CHILD SPELL AND READ THE DOLCH WORDS.
This helps them in their reading and writing so much!
*When children make mistakes on spelling tests, the difficult words are reviewed on future spelling tests.
We want to help children experience success.
If necessary another spelling group will be created.
If your child misses a spelling test, please give the spelling test at home and then send the mark to school so it can be recorded. Thank you.
