Here’s a quick update for this week.  We will be starting spelling today.  We are using a new curriculum called “Words Their Way”.  Students took a pretest to help us determine their correct level.  We have the students split into five different groups.  Based on the group, students will have spelling with either Ms. Behboudi, Mrs. Ericson, or Mr. Ledwein.  All three teachers will be doing the same process, but with different words sorts.  All students are expected to do the following each week:

Monday: Students will meet with their spelling teacher and learn a new sort.  The students will write the words onto the sort page.

Tuesday: Students will do a blind sort.  A blind sort is when someone tells the student a word and they point to the correct pattern on their sheet.

Wednesday: Students complete a worksheet.

Thursday: Students take a practice test with a parent.

Friday: Students will take the spelling test.
