This week in Language we will continue to learn about helping verbs and linking verbs!

Homework this week: none


Students will take a spelling practice test on Thursday this week due to the shortened week. If they get a 100, they will not have to take the spelling test on Friday. :) The practice test is a way for students to identify what words they already know, so that they can limit their studying. :) The practice test does not count for a grade unless the student gets a 100.
