Next week we are beginning our new district-wide literacy program called Journeys. I am excited to launch this program with our class. You will find a parent letter in your Friday Folder this week with information on our first lesson, including our spelling words and vocabulary terms. It would be helpful if you would review these vocabulary terms and spelling patterns with your child at home. I will be giving the children assessments on these spelling and vocabulary words on Fridays. I will plan to send the lists home the weekend before in case you want to get an early start on reviewing our focus spelling pattern!
