Transition words

Students this week got a great resource that I want them to keep for the rest of the year. It is a list of transition and linking words with the different uses for them. Here is a link to the list in case your child has lost his/her copy. http://www.smart-words.org/linking-words/linking-words.pdf

Reading Log

Reading logs are due every Friday. Please make sure your child is completing them. If they have lost their reading log, simply have them write a summary on what they have read for 20 minutes. Make sure to include the book , time and date as well.
