short vowel blends: tha, clu, fle
long vowel blends: tre, cro, sli
special sounds: ay in stay, cr in crib, y in fly, ou in pout, ch and ur in church, ar in farm, pr and ay in pray, or in born, wor in work, o in no

Spelling: This week we will have 12 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 12 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.

Bible: We will have a Bible verse each week. Students will say the verse to me. This week we are learning about Josiah, The Boy King.
Bible Verse: Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
Handwriting: Now that we are in 2nd quarter, my expectation for the students is a little higher than it was last quarter. Handwriting grades will always be taken from paper that gives them handwriting lines. I will grade on proper formation, placement and neatness.
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.
