Parents please note: If your student scored a 90% – 100% on both of last week’s spelling/vocab tests, he/she does not have to do spelling or vocabulary homework. Also, there are videos you can watch at the end of this lesson plan. I am helping kids become culturally literate by watching uplifting and diverse short videos.
