Spelling

Goal: Students will focus on learning weekly spelling patterns and incorporate them into their writing verses memorizing a weekly list of words that can often be quickly forgotten. Spelling lists will still be sent home to give you examples of words that follow the week's pattern.

 

EXAMPLE:
Week 1.4
Words that end with -ing and -ed
Sample words: clapping, jumped, walked


Schedule

Monday-Thursday: Students learn about the spelling pattern and practice.

Thursday: Students are given a 6-word practice test with words that follow the pattern of the week. These words will not be words from the spelling list that was sent home; this will more accurately test if they have learned the skill. If they spell 6/6 correctly, they are done with spelling for the week. Students who get less than 6/6 correct will get retaught the skill and have an opportunity Friday to show they've learned it.

Friday: 12-word test for students who got less than 6/6 correct on Thursday. 6 words will again be mystery words, and the last 6 will be ones from the spelling list.
