Hi All,
Here starts a new year.  I am so excited to have your students this year.  We had a GREAT half week and are off to such a good start.  As I said in my e-mail, I will write on this blog every Sunday.  It is super important that you and your student check it as it will have the next weeks spelling and vocabulary words, as well as things that are going on in the week that you will want to be aware of.  Please feel free to write replies on the blog.  The best way to get information to me though is via e-mail.  I check it several times a day every day.  My e-mail is Momtodd1@hotmail.com. Please feel free to contact me with ANY questions or concerns that you may have.  Those of you who have had me before know that I feel communication between parent/student/and teacher is a vital link to your child's 4th grade experience.

SPELLING for week of AUG. 25-29 (long E, long O) Spelling test is EVERY Friday

sweet
each

least
freedom

VOCABULARY--we will get these tomorrow in class because I want to explain some things to them.  The spelling of the vocab is not tested, just the definitions and they will have 2 weeks to study the definitions and a test will be given EVERY OTHER Friday
