This week, the first graders began working with a collection of spelling words from our Words Their Way spelling program. The students sorted the words into categories as they read each word aloud, paying close attention to the phonetic spelling pattern. This is an excellent program that will be used throughout the year to further develop their understanding of letter sounds, how to read and spell words. Each student will have a weekly sort. We will read, sort, write and play many games. In first grade we make reading and spelling fun!
