WORD STUDY

We begin a new cycle this week, so your child will be coming home with a new sort on Monday. While we do different activities during each school day, it is highly encouraged that parents help their child at home as well by calling out each word and having them write the correct spelling down. This helps to solidify the learning going on at school.
