In writing we will continue with Informative paragraphs!! We will work on the unique features of the seahorse such as their tail and the pouch!
In Fundations we will begin Unit 8. Please read the suggestions in the packet that will come home this week. This extra work at home will help them with their classwork as well as on the Unit Tests!

Remember they are the trick words from Fundations that the children need to know how to spell!
