Good Morning Families!!
Please remember that Parent/Teacher Conferences are Monday, September 18th. There will be no school this day. If you have not already turned in your form for time choices, please do so before tomorrow! I will be sending home time conformations next Monday.
Spelling words will resume next week! Whenever we have a short week, we will not have spelling words. Also, for clarification... The spelling test is graded for correct spelling AND correct formation of letters. The first several spelling tests that have been sent home have not been put in the gradebook since we are all working on forming our letters correctly. The week after parent/teacher conferences these spelling tests will be entered into the gradebook. Please practice with your child on the pages provided in the homework packet. If you'd like more paper, please let me know. Handwriting is a very important skill... Not only is it a 3rd grade standard; it is "free" points on ISTEP if their writing is neatly formed. If their letters are not formed correctly, their writing in class or on ISTEP is difficult to read and there are points taken off for capitals/lowercase letters in the wrong places. If you have any more questions about the grading for Spelling tests, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
