Weekly Assignments (May 12th -16th):
AR Home Reading - 2 books read and tests
 passed with 70% or above. This is important because I use it as a weekly Reading grade. Some students have not been doing this weekly reading. 
Reading Textbook - Read:  "The Surprise Party" and "Super Oscar" pp. 1140-161.  This is homework for Monday and Tuesday nights.  Some students aren't reading these stories.  This practice will make them better readers.
Math Homework - Due Friday.
Wednesday:   Sight word bags go home. Study  words in bag and initial the sheet provided.  Send bag back to school (before next Tuesday).  I put new words in bags and usually send them every Wednesday.  You may keep the words in the bag or take them out and keep them at home (I just need the bags sent back).  *No more new words this year.
                                                                                                 Friday:  Spelling Test -   party candy, grass, away, candle, dance, train, bank, land, stairs.  Use one spelling word in a sentence.              
Community Recipe Book:  If you have any great recipes that you would like to have in our community recipe book, please send them to school.  Call the office if you have any questions regarding this.
