Math Test Update

Math Test Update

Many students were absent this week so I feel we need more time to ensure everyone is understanding key concepts.  The Math test has been postponed until next week.

I would also remind those who have not returned their word study tests signed, with fix-ups made to do so by tomorrow so I can add our test for week.  Thank you!

Long Vowels

Long Vowels

This week will will focus on remembering all the long vowel sounds and combinations of letters which make these sounds:

a_e                       ee                     i_e

ai                          ea

ay                         u_e

Grade 3:             came, made, main, Friday, shape, tray, agree, meal, deal, used

Grade 4:             maybe, lately, paint, playground, able, trail, acorn, flavour, ancient, label

Our first word study quiz will be sent home on Monday.  Please return this quiz to school, signed and I ask that the students have made their corrections in the “fix-it” section of the quiz.

Note that marks are deducted for the InCorRecT use of upper and lower case letters and the students are aware that special attention needs to be given to this.
