We are always working on making words and anyway I can make it hands on we try it! We have recently found SCRABBLE CHEEZ-ITS and they are perfect for word making practice! We used them in RTI groups while working on vocabulary words and in class to practice spelling patterns. So, if you are ever out and about and spot a box of these WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THEM to use in class. These would also be a fun tool to use at home. As always, I have included some pictures of our "cheezy" word making.
|While you are shopping be on the look out for these.|

A FEW REMINDERS:
1. The pumpkin contest will end MONDAY NIGHT. Please come out to the PTO meeting Monday night and cast your vote for your favorite pumpkin. We will be awarding prizes that night- so come enjoy the fun. ALSO, the Book Fair will be open before and after the meeting for you to shop.
2. We have been using a FUN, new website to practice reading. We now have a license to RAZ-KIDS.COM. On this site your children are reading books and earning points. It is a very highly motivating system that we are excited to have access to. GUESS WHAT??? You can also access it at home!! I sent home a card with a password and login information. Check it out this weekend and let me know what you think. I think it will be a great tool for our classroom.
3. Don't forget to check your Friday Folder for classwork and other important information.
4. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.
