This week our spelling words are focusing on the prefixes UN and DIS, and how adding these prefixes to a word can change the meaning of the word.

We will wrap up tall tales this week. On Thursday, the students will read two short stories and decide which is a tall tale. More importantly, they will have to support their answer with evidence from the text. This type of activity and higher order thinking correlates to the new Common Core Standards.

Upcoming events...
