High Frequency Words - A little pamphlet was sent home with High-Frequency words to
study for all units up to Unit 18.  I will also be sending home little story readers that

Please look for these words in stories that you read at

ready to work ahead.  Please do so.   There are over 80 high-frequency words that need

Handwriting

Writing their first name and last name with a capital letter in the beginning and the rest
of the letters lowercase.  Please practice writing name this way.  Students often get in the
habit of writing their name in all capital letters and this is very hard to break.
Also practice writing letters that were taught.  Capital A - Z and lowercase a - z.  They
will be graded on how they write the letters
M, m, S, s, A, a, T,t,  C,c, P,p, A, a, N, n  
F, f and B, b, I, i, G, g, R,r, D, d, O, o.

vowel sound in a word.  This week focusing on the letter
X, x and J, j.
