• WELCOME TO OUR CLASS!
     
     Hello!  We are working very hard on our literacy skills to prepare for the IREAD test and ILEARN this Spring. 
    Each Monday your child should bring home our new Spelling List in his/her homework folder.  Our spelling test will be given each Friday.
    Every day {except Friday} I send home homework.  There will always be a math paper and a paper with either spelling, reading, or writing skills to practice.
    Please read at home together and practice math facts!
