Week of August 22, 2016 through August 26, 2016

This week we will be starting our Word Study Unit. This is a vocabulary unit, which requires learning definitions of common affixes and root words. There will be an assessment in two weeks. Students will be expected to know the definition of all of the affixes/root words and use them to determine the meaning of words. A study guide will be sent home this Friday. I will be emphasizing the important study skill of studying a few words each night.
