It's All About the Books
We also discussed how reading can be like weight lifting. To be able to lift heavy weights, we need to lift smaller weights over and over to build our muscles. That's why our fluency work may seem easy for some but the rereading does build our "reading muscle". Sometimes we need a spotter when we try to lift a heavy weight and sometimes we need to get help when we want to try a more challenging book because we are super interested in it.
Learning to Spell Through Word Patterns
We have been hard at work during our morning workshop this week learning various activities to challenge our thinking about our patterns and practice our word list.
Here you will find a more detailed description of our spelling program, a spelling calendar, and a list of ideas for practicing spelling at home.
