Students & Parents,
You should study using this great teaching resource. SpellingCity makes learning your word lists fun and easy.
Monday: Sort words into catagories like the ones they did in school.
Tuesday: Do a "blind sort" lay down a word from each category as a header and then read the rest of the words aloud. You child must tell you where the word belongs without seeing it. Lay it down and let your child move it if he or she is wrong.
Wednesday: Assist your child in doing a word hunt which is looking for words with the same sound, pattern, or both in a book.
Thursday: Do a writing sort to prepare for the Friday test. As you call out the words in a random order your child should write them in categories. Call out any words your child misspells a second or even a third time.
Thank you for your support. Together we can help your child make valuable progress.
