Words of the Week

Page history last edited by Sandra McVannel 11 years, 2 months ago

***We are now done all of the word wall words for this year both in grade 2 and in grade 3.  The words are all posted on the wall in our classroom in full view so that students are expected to use them correctly in their writing tasks.  Please feel free to review the words at any time.  We will continue to practise our words in class through games and use of Spelling City!


Parents:  Here is the page you will want to check every week.  Students will begin working with a new series of words each week.  We will introduce the words on the first day of the week, print them in our planner and use these words daily in practise. On Friday there will be a short activity to prove that your child has learned to spell and recognize these words.  Students are invited to learn both sets if they choose, but are responsible for the words in their grade.  (i.e. grade 2's are welcome to study the grade 3 words and vice versa!)


P.S. Check out the activities offered on Spelling City to help your child practise and "play games" with the words of the week. Just click on the words Spelling City!
