Bible: This week’s memory verse is Psalm 34:19 “Many adversities come to the one who is righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” The Bible stories are Joseph’s Dreams (Genesis 37:1-11) and Joseph Sold (Gen. 37:12-35).
Phonics/Spelling: Practice Charts 6 – 9; practice blends and words with special sounds in Handbook for Reading; dictate words from each chart and have your child write the special sound(s) in the words (I can check their work, if you want); practice Spelling words every day (have child write words as you dictate them or spell them to you orally). We made flashcards for charts 8 and 9, so you can help your child practice these clue words and special sounds.
We are also working on suffix rules, adding suffixes to root words.

Language: We are working on Chap. 6 – classifying sentences and rewriting sentences correctly. They are to write the capitalization rule numbers they use when rewriting the sentences correctly. I will send home the Chapter Check-up sheet before Friday for review.
Reading: See homework pages on the reading homework calendar. Don’t forget to initial each date after you listen to your child read.
