- Words Their Way
This year we will be using Words Their Way(WTW) Spelling Program. Students learn how words are spelled based on their sounds (phonics). Your child will be given a spelling inventory to determine his/her spelling level.
WTW is a hands-on program that involves sorting words into categories, and games. I am excited about this program because children are actually learning to spell the words, rather than memorizing them for a test. I will give very few "traditional" spelling tests.
In the beginning I will not be sending words home. After we learn how the program works, I'll send home spelling lists and an activity. I will also upload activities to this page in the active folder file. This assignment will be optional. Students who complete the assignment and do their best work will receive Bruin Bucks!
