These are the same spelling
words that the
language arts program uses.
Every week there is a new
sound/spelling that the list focuses on.
The last lesson repeats
many of the unit's previous words
To build spelling
proficiency in class, we:
Discuss the spelling pattern or sound this week's list
a huge image of the word on our projection screen.
To do this, I change my MS
Word "zoom" to about 275% and then
I use my projector's zoom
to cut off the unnecessary borders
spell the word clearly
say the word again
write the word clearly
on our paper
From there, the students
have created their own spelling list to study from for
We also use the same
sheet of paper to write the words four additional
times (OK, so old habits die hard).
