HW: Please write the spelling words 3-5 times each. I would like them to turn this in tomorrow so I know they are practicing. Please write them down and keep them on a sheet for home. Test will be Friday.
Spelling Words for the week:
Words 1-3 focus on the “ea”
Words 4-5 focus on the “x” which makes a “ks” sound.
