Word Study

This year students in the 5th grade will receive word study words. They will get new words as they master the spelling and sorting of their current word list. These words will not be sent home for homework. They are working with the words in class and using the skills learned from the words. They are memorizing the patterns not the words. Word study/spelling and reading go hand in hand. 

  • Word study test are given bi-weekly.
