The paper bag book reports and presentations were absolutely fabulous! It was such a pleasure to see each child bravely and clearly share their report! I am proud of my students! You can be very proud of your child. 

This week we are on Spelling List 8 words.  The link to SpellingCity is below with each list on it every week. We will have our spelling test on Friday.
