Sight Words

We have begun to work on learning to spell some of our sight words correctly. We can read them but now we need to work on writing them correctly. 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 this week, your child should be able to explain this method to you. We will also create and write sentences using these words. The five words we are currently learning are on our word wall cards that we have on our desks during writing 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, wint, litl, uv, git and more disappear from your child's writing.

Our new sight words are: and, like, for, day, her
