*Starting in Skills Unit 3 we will begin taking spelling tests. You will find these words, along with the test date in the very back of the BEAR Book. Although we do practice these words in class, at home practice of the spelling words is highly recommended.

*Reading will be extremely important this year. Students will be exposed to a lot of reading at school but it is very important that they are exposed to it at home. Whenever possible, encourage your child to read, read with your child, and read to your child. The more exposure a child can have the better. We will be working from a variety of different reading sources including our Core Knowledge, leveled readers, and our classroom library. Students will bring home stories in their binders that we have read together in class. When you read this story and sign and return it, I will give your child a Cricket Ticket. They can spend their Cricket Tickets on Friday in the the prize box. You will find a reading log in the BEAR book. Each time you and your child read jot it down. When your child fills up their reading log they will get to pick a sweet treat from the treat box.
