  • A Peek at our Week

  • Reading with Mr. Wellen

    Reading Mr. Wellen teaches reading, spelling, and vocabulary. The students will receive spelling homework every week. It is important to make sure the homework gets completed because we will not cover spelling words during the week. We will be working on reading skills and strategies the majority of our week. The students will complete a spelling, vocabulary, and a Cold Read Test every week. Most of the time spelling and vocabulary tests will be on Thursday and Cold Read Tests on Friday!
