Class activities for Thursday, November 16

Spelling: Today we learned four rules for using capital letters:

  1. For the names of specific people
  2. For the names of specific places
  3. For the names of titles
  4. For days, months, and holidays, but not seasons

We will have a spelling test on Monday, and the skill test will assess consonant digraphs (ph, th, wh, sh, ch) and words with digraphs. The unit 3 spelling packet will also be due on Monday.

Cursive: Cursive worksheets pp. 36-38 were made available this week and are due on Friday.
