Word Study

Quarter 1 Nightly Assignments - A list of all assignments is in student WS notebook 

Students will have Word Study homework every night, Monday through Thursday. It is possible that some assignments are done in class during reading and writing workshop.  The exception to this is Monday Night's SAW.  This is always to be done at home/after school.  Each Monday (according to the schedule in their Word Study spiral and listed below) students will meet with a teacher to sort their new words. Each week students are studying a spelling pattern and not necessarily learning how to spell a specific word. Students then repeat the sort independently in their spirals.  They turn in their spirals on Monday and will repeat the sort with their cut-out words and worksheet at home. The SAW worksheets are available in class as well as on this page.

MONDAY NIGHT - S.A.W.
