SPELLING-This week week we are finishing unit 19.Vowel dipthongs are vowel teams that have neither long vowel sounds nor short vowel sounds. The next 2 weeks, we will focus on the ou and ow. Both of these dipthongs signal the same sound, the “ow” sound. Ou is the spelling used at the beginning and middle of words; ow is the spelling used at the end of words. However, ow is also used before l, er, and n.

Even though this week is a short week-we will have our spelling test on Friday.
