Word Work Support

We are starting our word work groups this week! All of our second grade students have been assigned to a group based on the spelling skills they need to work on at this time. Each of the second grade teachers will be working with only one or two levels, allowing us to provide more focused instruction. The kids are excited to be working with friends from other classrooms and in some case in other classrooms. I will be letting you know what your child is working on and some options for additional at home practice. One tool that we will use will be Spelling City. This is an online resource that lets kids practice their spelling with fun games and activities. Here is the link if you'd like to give it a preview.
