Our week started off with a focus on the
5th grade spelling program. This first unit focused on the long "a" and long "e" sounds and the many different phonetic spellings of these sounds in words. We worked on the first spelling packet together going page by page so as to be comfortable with the format. Spelling packets are assigned on Monday and due on Friday with a spelling quiz. Your child's graded spelling quiz went home with them today along with a "Parent News" letter about what was accomplished in Language Arts this month. In addition to spelling, we continued work in our Reader's Notebooks with lessons focusing on Inferencing skills. We practiced how to "read between the lines" when reading our chapter books to better our comprehension. We also started a new Read-a-loud book titled, Animal House and Iz which will help us with our study on inferrencing. Be sure to ask your child how this book started.
