Question of the week

How do people respond to natural disasters?  



This week we are reading "Earthquakes".  

We will focus on some vocabulary words in this story.  It would be helpful if you will reinforce the meaning of these words at home with your child.  Also, on this newsletter you will find our spelling words for the week.  Please practice these words at home as well.  The words in italics are our challenge spelling words.  Let's have a great week!
