Students receive Greek/Latin word parts on a list each Monday. They need to study the definitions only for a test each Thursday.


Students receive new spelling words (12) every Monday, along with the definitions. Their homework is to write each word 5 times on the back of the given list, and pass in for a check mark by Wednesday morning. Students need to be ready for the Friday test, which involves spelling the words and completing the 12 sentences with the correct words. 


Read at least 30 minutes each day from their free-reading book that they have chosen. This includes school time, evenings, weekends, and vacations. Students are assigned certain genres to read, and have a blue tracking sheet to stay organized. After each book is completed, students should turn in a product from the list of choices given the first week of school.
