In Reading, we took our test for the story “Pig in a Wig.” Throughout this story we discussed who helps animals. We focused on identifying the plot of the story. We took our test on this story today!
Our focus phonics skill was short I and consonant –x. Our spelling words were six, lip, in, wig, it, did, mix, sit, pin, and fix. Our challenge words were “she” and “take.” We took our test on these spelling words today!
