New Vocabulary Words

Today we are sending home new vocabulary words to be tested on NEXT Friday, October 3rd. I am also attaching a copy of the vocabulary words page to my calendar at the top of my blog for easy access and printing options. You will see it under todays date and a link will be on the event to view a copy. We will be using these words regularly during class these next couple of weeks and will be doing several activities to prepare us for the vocabulary test. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me at any time and I will answer as soon as I have the opportunity. 🙂 Thank you!!
