This week we will begin our first practicing of words at home that we need to be able to spell in everyday use. We are starting with words that are familiar and that we should all be successful with. Last week a duo-tang was sent home to get the families ready for this new adventure. Each week the home practise will be on a Tic Tac Toe board. The middle square is to be done by each child, but then the next 3 choices are to be made by the child. The sheets that the student uses should be put into the duo-tang and returned to school on Friday. If the choices do not actually create a 'line', that's OK. The point is to have the student working on learning words in a positive manner, and be able to apply that learning in the classroom. Next week the words will be on the Word Wall and the child will be expected to be able to spell them on their own. Here's another chance for you to be an active participant in your child's learning, demonstrating that learning is important to you too!
Words for this week are: red blue green yellow black brown orange purple pink white grey silver gold
Grade Three students should review these words as well as learn the following:
castle prince princess king queen make believe fairy tale
Hope you had an amazing weekend in that beautiful record breaking sunshine!
