Where is the homework?

I wanted to let everyone know that we have added all the Grade One and Grade Two words to our word wall.  The students also completed the Developmental Spelling Inventory last week.  I am using the results of that assessment to 'customize' your child's weekly word work activities.  Every Wednesday your child completes a word sort activity that works on a particular spelling skill at his/her current developmental level.  If you would like an extra copy for home practice, please let me know in your child's agenda. 

We will continue to review, through Word Work activities, the words that continue to be commonly misspelled in students' work.  We will also have a weekly spelling theme that we will practice.  This week we are working on regular plurals.  Next week, we will add irregular plurals.

I truly appreciate how diligent the students AND PARENTS have been in completing weekly spelling homework this year!  I will send homework books home TO KEEP next week.

Thanks for all your support!
