Your child will practice spelling patterns within and outside of class. Parents will be provided suggested spelling practice skills for daily use at home to support mastery. Accurate spelling is encouraged and will be assessed on all written work. Students can access SPELLING CITY through LINKS. This resource will help build knowledge through the practice of spelling and word learning. Remember, spelling is the study of word patterns and application.
Each Monday, your child will receive a new spelling list. Have your child explain the pattern for the week and practice spelling other words, not necessarily on their list, but include other words that support this pattern. Students will be assessed on approximately 4-lists at the end of each month. Students are graded on the spelling pattern, 3rd-grade high-frequency writing words, conventions, grammar and listening.
Scores are available for viewing in IC. Please ask your child to share his/her list with you weekly.
