Words Their Way Spelling ProgramEvery week students are given a new list of words to work with and learn. Here is a look at our weekly plan for these spelling words. We encourage you to continue these activities at home every night.
Monday: Cut out the words and sort them into categories. Write the headers and words down in your grammar/spelling spiral. This is completed in class.
Tuesday: Work with a partner doing a blind sort. Put down one word from each category as a header and then read the rest of the words aloud to your partner. Your partner will indicate where the word goes without seeing it. Put the word down and your partner will move it to the correct category. You will switch and repeat.
Wednesday: Go on a word hunt. Look for words in a book that have the same sound, pattern, or both. Try to find two or three for each category and write them in your grammar/spelling spiral under the appropriate header.
Thursday: Work with a partner doing a writing sort. One partner will randomly call out the words and the other partner will write them down into the appropriate categories. You will then switch, repeat, and check over each one.Friday: Review and get ready for the spelling quiz!Spelling Video TutorialsSpelling Practice OnlineClick the link below to access our page on Spelling City to practice this week's spelling words!
