 Some Spelling Rules: 
* CVCC plus ending: When a word has only one vowel and ends in more than one consonant, just add the ending.
*CVC plus ending: When a word has only one vowel and ends in only one consonant, double the consonant and then  add the ending.
*CVC,CVCC: When a word has only one vowel and ends in one or more consonants, the vowel is usually short.
*CV: when a word has only one vowel and it is at the end, the vowel is usually long.

* Don't forget to review addition  and subtraction math facts each night*

Please remember to read 15-20 minutes every night!!
