There are a few words that use the -oe vowel team for the long /o/ sound. The most common are: doe, toe, tiptoe, foe, woe, toenail, hoe, and Joe.

There are 3 ways to spell the final /k/ sound. 

(1) When you hear a consonant right before the final /k/ sound, simply use the letter -k. Some examples are: Hank, mask, milk, blanket, whiskers.

(2) The vowel/consonant/e (sneaky silent -e) is used to make the final /k/ sound when a long vowel is heard just before the final /k/ sound. Some examples are: fake, spoke, Luke, cupcake, hike.

(3) If a short vowel sound occurs just before the final /k/, use -ck. Some examples are: Jack, tick, block, lipstick.

Red words are: eye, first, February.

This week's test is Thursday since we are not in school Friday.

Hello, all! We have a busy week ahead! Here are some thinks to take note of over the next several days:

Tuesday is Dove Hunt Math day! It's also our first Happy Gram party! Please check your email for more details about this FUN day!

We have a math fact quiz Tuesday. Keep practicing those facts at home!

Library day is Wednesday, so please help your son  remember to pack his books to return or recheck. Remember that the Library is open after school until 3:40 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for boys who would like to return or check out books. They may also take AR tests.

Our spelling test is Thursday. We are working with those few words that use -oe for long /o/. We're also working with 3 ways to spell the final /k/ sound. Please review the Spelling sheet that will come home Monday with plenty of examples for our patterns. Red words: eye, first, February.

I'm looking forward to meeting with you at our conferences. Our official conference day is Friday, which is a holiday for students. 

It's hard to believe it's so close, but Fall Break is October 4-8! I hope you have a relaxing few days planned with your families.

Have a great week!

Our skill is adding -ed and -ing to base words.

When a base word ends in -e, drop the -e before adding -ed or -ing. Examples:  race...raced, racing;  joke...joked, joking

When a base word ends in a single vowel and a single consonant, the final consonant is usually doubled before adding -ed or -ing.  Examples:  stop...stopped, stopping;  jog...jogged, jogging

Our test is Thursday.
