We will have our first reading and spelling test on 09-12-08. Please review the spelling words with your child. It might be helpful to have a spelling test at home where you say the word and have your child write the word out. Additionally, review the meaning of the vocabulary words, as your child will have to know the definitions for the test. I would also recommend that you read and discuss the story, "Because of You", with your child. This story can be found in your child's reader.
