SPELLING-This week’s spelling words are: Then, them, out, she, many. Please continue practicing spelling words nightly. The skill of the week is digraphs-ch, th, sh, and wh sounds.
READING-This week we will be starting Listening to Reading. I have 10 MP3 players loaded with books on tape. The children have the opportunity to listen to fluent readers. By listening to good reading children become fluent readers themselves.
MATH-This week we will be starting unit 2. This unit focuses on addition and subtraction, fact families, frames and arrows, and “what’s my rule?”. Please continue to practice simple addition facts, the children need to have “fact power”. We take a mad minute test everyday- the children are expected to be able to finish 30 simple addition problems in 2 min.

On our Walk thru Fraser we will visit the library, fire station, Fort Fraser and finally El Charro’s restaurant for lunch. Make sure permission slip and money are turned in by Fri. Oct 5th.
