Crew News October 26, 2012

Sight Words
Before break we worked on letter formation during our handwriting time. Now we are going to change things up a little bit and work on spelling some sight words correctly while we practice our handwriting. We will be learning 5 words every two weeks (we will take two weeks because we won't be able to fit in our practice time every day due to Library visits and shortened days). We will begin by noticing any unusual things about how each word is spelled and then we will write them using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. By the end of next week, your child should be able to explain this method to you. The five words we are currently learning will be placed on our word wall and all students will be expected to learn these words and spell them correctly in their writing. As we get better at learning words, we may pick up our pace and work on more words at a time. So soon you can expect to see words like wuz, hav, lik, cum, litl, uv,  and more disappear from your child's writing.

No homework for the weekend. Enjoy some good books with your child.
