This week we will be starting a weekly spelling routine. Don’t worry; there won’t be any tests! Each week the children will be given a list of 5 spelling words that we will practice in class, learning how to stretch out each word and find the first, middle, and ending sounds. These words will become the base of our sight word collection that we will read to ourselves regularly. Please continue to work with your child if they don’t yet know most of their single letter phonograms by this point. It is very exciting to be at this stage where the children can see how they can use their knowledge of individual sounds to read and to write!
