Students will learn the major principles and patterns of English spelling, learn reliable spelling strategies that they can apply to both familiar and unfamiliar words, and become aware of the rich network of spelling-meaning relationships that can extend their vocabulary.
Each week students must write a sentence, in cursive, using each of the first twenty words (Basic Words: 20 words = 20 sentences).
Spelling Tests will be on most THURSDAYS!
Grades are recorded on a point basis. Each category is then weighted accordingly.
