Practice Math facts for 10 minutes - addition/subtraction facts; when those facts are fluent, begin multiplication facts. There will be spelling homework nightly. Spelling words will be posted on my website. Spelling will start the 2 nd week of school.

Otherwise, student will complete the following from the spelling book: –Monday – Independent Practice –Tuesday – Review Spelling Spree and/or Dictionary –Wednesday – Proofreading and Writing Words for the week will be on our website. If they are completing the differentiated list, the menu will be there as well. Homework will be due on the day of the test. Spelling test will be given on Thursday.
