Spelling: This week we will have 15 spelling words and 5 bonus words. We will have a spelling test every Friday. Students will write these words when I call them out. This week five bonus words will be added to the list. Students should learn the 15 spelling words first. For a challenge, they can also learn the five bonus words. All students will take the bonus portion of the test. For each bonus word spelled correctly, the student will get 1 extra point on the test. There is no penalty for spelling a bonus word incorrectly.
oil, boil, spoil, join, moist, noise, point, boy, joy, toy, proud, blow, skirt, said, what
Bonus Words: choice, hoist, Saturday, January, February (days of the week and months of the year must begin with a capital letter to get credit)
Bible: We will have a Bible verse each week. Students will say the verse to me. We are the lesson “Jesus is Born” this week.
Bible Verse: Luke 2:7 “…and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
Handwriting: We will continue learning how to form the letters correctly. This past week, we spent extra time reviewing lower case ‘d’ and all letters that should have monkey tails.
Creative Writing: Students will continue to practice writing complete sentences using capital letters at the beginning and periods at the end. I will introduce question marks this week. We will continue learning the parts of a sentence. We will be writing super sentences. All sentences should have these four parts:
Begin with a capital letter.
End with a punctuation mark.
Be written neatly.
They will write sentences with their spelling words, and write in their journals daily.
