Today we started learning the process for word study. We started by practicing sorting words using our names. Students amazed me at the ways they thought to sort. After learning that words follow patterns (not all words - some are oddballs), we looked at this week's list and sorted them by their pattern. See if they can explain the pattern to you tonight. Starting next week students will work in a small group with the me to identify and practice the patterns in their words. This week we are learning the process all together.
An instruction sheet cam e home to help you assist your student's homework. Please keep them in a safe place. We will use these practices all year with new words every week.
