Spelling-We are continuing Unit 12 this week. This week we will be learning that an open syllable in one that ends in a vowel. The vowel can run a long way. It is very proud, so it says its own name or long sound.
Prefixes are word parts that are added to the beginning of a word that changes the word’s meaning. These prefixes included with these words are: be-, de-, ex-, pro-, re-
Please continue studying the spelling words nightly and work on the spelling activities on the parent letter
