A Peek at the Week

Treasure Box-Hopefully everyone is enjoying making their Treasure Boxes for Tuesday. I can’t wait to see all the boxes. We are going to read our first Book Treasure on Wednesday. A 5×7 envelope will come home with the treasure and a retelling sheet. Please return the envelope and retelling sheet by Friday  The treasure goes in the box.

Spelling-This weeks words focus on vowel suffixes (suffixes which begin with a vowel-ing, er, est, y). When a vowel suffix is added to a base  word ending in a single consonant, the vowel suffix jumps over the consonant and makes the vowel say its own name. In order to protect the short vowel sound in the base word, we double the final consonant.
