I hope that you all had a great weekend. It looks like it is going to be another hot week!!

We will begin  Personal Narratives this week in Writing.  Hopefully we will have a published piece in a few weeks!  In Science we are still talking about heredity and adaptations with animals. The Spelling list this week is a little easier, but there are still a few homophones.  Remember that you can go to Spelling City to study.   Have a great week!
