Research shows us that spelling is foundational for reading. Our spelling program focuses on patterns.  Our brains are constantly looking for patterns, such as when we add an “e” to the end of a word, it makes the middle vowel long ( hop ->hope). We work in class by finding patterns, studying sight words, and other word work. We will be using the Spelling City App and  the SpellBoard App  which both help students learn spelling in a fun way.
