Peek of the Week Nov. 30-Dec. 4
Spelling – This week we will be learning how to spell Christmas words. Our spelling words are: Jesus, Christ, Christmas, Bethlehem, shepherds, Joseph, Mary, star, angels, joy, manger, stable, donkey, singing, lights, snowflakes, stockings, ornaments, presents, December.
* Please notice that some of the words need to be capitalized. This is very important. I will count off one point if a word needs to be capitalized and it is not. I will count off two points if a word is capitalized and does not need to be capitalized. Be careful!
