Thanksgiving Break

It was a very quick week full of review and house cleaning. These two days were a great opportunity to review strategies and skills covered thus far in the year. Students were especially fond of the spelling review game "Sparkle!" If you have not heard about "Sparkle" yet, you must ask your child about it. The real game of Dominoes was introduced and children seemed to grasp the initial concepts about the game. If you are familiar with the playing of dominoes and terminology I would encourage you to play some with your child and/or family. Reading review focused on a number of different reading and comprehension strategies as well as the imaginative Unit 4 introduction activity "Sketch-to-Stretch."

I hope you all have a delightful Thanksgiving Holiday with family and loved ones! If you are traveling, please do so safely!
