We are using Word Books to help the students learn sight words and vocabulary words to use in their writing. Each student has their own copy that they keep in their desks. Many words are already in the book, but there is also ample room to write any additional words they would like to use in any writing they do, from journal entries, to writing assignments, and even on tests! The goal is to increase their personal lexicons to give them the confidence and tools to go further in their writing with each new writing endeavor.

Handwriting: Review printing

Spelling/Phonics: words with short a and long a sounds

Grammar: subjects, predicates, quotations, commas

Science: weather, climate, topography, animals and plants of countries around the world!

Social Studies: Geography, Art, Traditions, Language & Cultures from Around the World


Supplies: We ALWAYS need more tissues!

Amazon Wishlist link:

Please send a cloth napkin or tea towel to cover your child’s desk at snack and lunch time.  Snack should be limited to 1 item that your child is able to open without assistance.

Please send in a written note if your child will be dismissed differently than indicated the first week of school.
