READING: A story is introduced each week. Students work on vocabulary, comprehension, reading strategies, skills, and phonics through whole group and small group instruction. The students work on projects, activities, and workbooks. A test on the reading selection is given each Friday. The students are graded on tests, homework, class participation, notebooks, and oral fluency.
SPELLING: The spelling words correlate to our reading story each week. There are twenty new words, three review words, two challenge words and a surprise bonus word each week. New words and spelling patterns are introduced at the beginning of the week. A test is given each Friday.
