Students & Parents- Please check out the “How to Form Letters” video on this cursive website- Donna Young’s Cursive. You can also find it in the links on the right under “Student- writing”. Parents you can find the site to print worksheets under “Parent Resources” Printing and Cursive worksheets . PLEASE be sure to form the letters the way you have been taught. It is very difficult to UNDO bad habits. We will be practicing in class, but more practice at home would be very helpful.

We will have a high frequency spelling word test instead on Friday.
Book order forms will be sent out this week too.
Mrs. McKean’s class is working on week 2 of Ranger Dockett spelling words. The pattern is consonant clusters ( st, cl ) that work together to make a sound. Students should work on studying the words ( look, say, think, write, check) to be successful!
*High frequency words
This week we are continuing to focus on the vowel – consonant – e pattern. The “silent e” at the end of a word makes the vowel say its name.
11.one ( doesn’t follow the pattern – memorize)
12.goes ( doesn’t follow the pattern – memorize)
13.beautiful (high frequency word)
14.even (high frequency word)
Spelling test will be Friday 9/7/12
