Dear Parents,

We had a great week! We have the Book Fair going on this week. This week we will be learning about spiders. I would like to remind you that we are starting a new nine weeks. We will be doing lap-books as a challenging activity. You may send in pictures of spiders to go in your child’s lap book. Please continue to help your child with reading comprehension and sight words. Don’t forget to let your child read their book that goes home on Monday and complete the comprehension questions. Thank you so much! Mrs. Marshall
