Spelling Words

Our weekly spelling list is sent home each Friday in the homework folder along with helpful tips and tricks for studying. This allows students ample time to practice their words before the spelling test is given the following Friday. Each week, we will focus on a different spelling pattern that corresponds to the skills we are learning in phonics and word study.

Homework

Homework is assigned weekly starting in October. Assignments are sent home each Friday in the homework folder and are due the following Thursday. Please email your child's teacher prior to the due date if you need another copy of the homework assignment or spelling words. Extra copies will also be available in the classroom.
