I have added the new spelling words for first and second grade. Please be sure your son or daughter practices these words daily. I'm noticing a number of students who are not passing their spelling test on Friday. This is a concern for me. We practice our words daily in class but your son or daughter may need extra support at home. It is very important that your son or daughter be able to spell their grade-level words correctly. If they cannot, they may not pass our end of the year writing assessment. I am counting on your support to help your son or daughter with their spelling words on a daily basis Our spelling test will be this Friday, November 2, 2012.
