o Read the story aloud to someone
o Read it silently
o Complete workbook pages 157-164 and 167-170. Tear out and place in envelope to return.
o 4-square sentences using one vocabulary word in each. Remember we fold paper in fourths. One sentence goes in each box. Sentences should start with a capital letter, end with appropriate punctuation, have the vocabulary word spelled correctly and underlined. One vocabulary word in each of four total sentences. Place in envelope to return.
o 4-square sentences with spelling words. Same as above but two spelling words in each sentence for a total of four sentences. Place in envelope to return.
o Spelling test: if they want to write the words in cursive after they take the test printing the words, they certainly may. (The children are accustomed to my grading our tests immediately and are always eager to know what they made. I have sent you grading scales in case you want to do this. You certainly do not have to. Challenge words do not count in the spelling grade.) Place in envelope to return.
o No Open Court reading test
Saxon Math: In the work packet, you will find these lessons stapled together. You will also see a packet for this week labeled “adults only”. These are answer keys or directions I feel may help you. The children are accustomed to my grading our facts or tests immediately and are always eager to know what they made. I’ve sent you grading scales in case you want to do this. You certainly don’t have to.
This week, if you would like to skip the homework on the back of our math sheets, you may. Your decision.

Liberty’s Legacy: Unit 9, Veteran Tribute. Watch videos, complete workbook pages 19-20 and the vocabulary portion on p. 27. Don’t tear out these pages. This workbook will be returned to me May 4 (as of today’s writing. I’m sure it’s subject to change).
Handwriting: We are basically through with handwriting. As I’ve said before, I don’t have a copy of the handwriting workbook. In the months before school begins next year, try to practice cursive every once in a while. You can ask your child to write all the capital letters. Then another day, ask them to write all the lowercase letters, connecting each one to the next one. (They often forget to dot i’s and j’s and cross t’s.)
o Monday: Would you rather travel in space, see the Super Bowl, or be president for one day? Why?
o Tuesday: If you wanted to earn $50.00, how could you do it?

o Thursday: What would you choose to come out of the school water fountain instead of water? Why?
o Friday: Who is the funniest person you know and why are they funny?
