Literacy Information from Administration
As many of you know we have been looking into some different spelling resources to use with our learners. Utilizing the work of last year’s Vocabulary and Spelling committee and the most recent training offered last fall on Word Work, the literacy coaches created a proposed grade-level spelling plan. This plan is grounded in the spelling lessons, that center upon spelling rules, from our current Reading Street textbook adoption.
At this time, we are encouraging educators to look over this resource and see where it may benefit the spelling work they are already doing in the classroom. While educators may choose to utilize a full implementation of this plan in place of what they are currently doing for spelling, it is not a requirement that they do so at this time. For those educators who do chose to utilize this resource, the literacy coaches will be calling upon them to provide feedback and insight into any adaptations that need to be made before we move forward with the task of creating lessons for the entire year.
On the Language and Literacy Google Site you will find more information, the guidelines, and all of the resources.
