Spelling: We reviewed doubling the last consonant when adding suffixes for certain words. This will be the skill tested for tomorrow’s spelling test.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on summarizing as a reading strategy.
