Students will be given differentiated word sorts and will be assessed by the teacher once every two weeks. The students' spelling schedule is as follows:

Week 1:

  • On Mondays, students will create personal spelling cards using differentiated words provided by the teacher. Teachers will demonstrate how students sort their words based on the "rule". Students will also be given 3 differentiated sight words to practice sorting for the remainder of the week.

Week 2:

  • Students will choose from several different strategies to practice their sight words and spelling words throughout week two. On Friday, students will be assessed using sentence dictation.

Students will take a picture of their words in order to practice them at home. Below are a few examples of engaging activities to help your child practice at home!

* Writing words with Playdough

* Painting words

* Spelling City App

* Magnetic ABC App

* Writing Wizard App

* Using Dot paint pens to spell the words

* Write letters on legos and allow child to build their words

* Write a funny story using spelling AND sight words.
