Dear Room 21 Students and Families,
This year we will practice and fine tune our spelling skills using the Spelling City Program. I will make available spelling lists that are chosen to meet each student's special spelling needs. As you finish the activities and tests from one list, just move forward to the next list until all of the lists are completed. Make sure to completely finish all activities from one list before moving on to the next list. Please take your time--think carefully about each word. Use memory "tricks" to help you to link the proper spelling of a word to something that you already know, make up a rhyme to go with the word, make a picture in your head that helps you to remember the spelling, rewrite a difficult word many times, draw a picture using the word, look for letter patterns in the word, etc.
