Spelling Program

Spelling Homework

  • Many of you are familiar with practicing for spelling by memorization.  We are working on understanding WHY words are spelled the way they are and learning the rules in the English language.  
  • Your child will be bringing home a collection of spelling words every other Monday that have been introduced in class.  Each night of the week (Monday-Thursday) your child is expected to do a different activity to ensure that these words and the spelling principles they represent are mastered.  These activities have been modeled and practiced in school, so your child can teach you how to do them. Spelling homework will be checked DAILY.
