Curriculum Update January 23-27

I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Please remember that the literacy playbook or games should be played each night in review for the Kansas Reading State Assessment. This should be studied as part of homework each night and brought back to school each day to look over.  Just a reminder, the links to the study guide and some prefix/suffix matching and quizzes can be found on my class homepage at  They are under useful links.  Here are the links to each one as well.
