The grammar test will be Monday.  Students are studying dependent and independent clauses.  If a dependent clause starts the sentence, it should be followed by a comma.  Independent clauses can stand alone; they don't need the other part of the sentence to make sense.

The reading test is still scheduled for Friday.  Review main idea, supporting details, and the vocabulary.  Also, everyone has a friendly letter to write, using page 143 as a guide.  At least 3 vocabulary words should be included in the letter.

The spelling test is Friday, List 5.  Everyone also has to choose 10 pictures from 1-20 and draw a picture to show the meaning.

Please send in your party money as soon as possible.  T-shirt sizes are needed of the field trip t-shirt.

Have a great night!

Friday the parade will start at 2pm and will find its way to the high school stadium.  Classroom parties will follow.  4th grade has collected $5/student to help defray the cost of snacks.  If you haven't sent yours in, please do so.  Students may also bring in candy/snacks, but remember it must be store bought.

Our spelling test will be Thursday on list 4.  Students took a pre-test yesterday, and have had the list since last Friday.  On the flip side is list 5, so please do not throw it away.
