    As we head toward out seventh week of school, could I ask that you now start working with your child on his/her spelling.  Several students are transitioning from spelling words phonetically to the correct spelling of words.  The more we read ... the easier it will become to see how words are spelled and to self-correct the written word! We are writing quite a bit and there are still a few words that the students are not self correcting.  THANKS!!!
     
    We are currently working on Friendly Letters.  Feel free to ask your child the details:  date, heading, body of the letter, closing, P.S.
    Please make sure that your child has DIFFERENT books in their reading bags.  We are doing quite a bit of reading and I have noticed that some students have the same books from the beginning of the year...that is not beneficial for a student who is emerging as a reader!   They need different books to keep them engaged in reading!
     
    We are currently studying our NEIGHBORHOOD in Social Studies...as you drive home and around your neighborhood, please point out points of interest for your child so they will be able to put in on their maps!  Thanks!
     
    Have you reviewed the Act of Contrition with your child?  We recite it every morning and they are getting quite proficient with it!
     
    Our feeling words for this week will be:  quiet, stubborn, respect, curious and belong.  We are also beginning our work with META moment...more on that next week!!!
     
    Blessings and peace,
    Ms. Scaltrito
