Along with our weekly spelling test we will begin having sentence homework. Students will be responsible for writing 5 sentences for homework. They may choose any 5 of the ten words for their spelling sentences. The spelling list along with writing paper will go home on Mondays. Spelling sentences are due on Thursdays. Try to help your child write a variety of sentences. There should be at least one asking, one telling and one strong feeling (. ? !). Also stress that sentences begin with capital letters and end with punctuation marks. Have your child read them back to you to see if they make sense. Please have your child number their sentences and underline spelling words.
