Word Work/Spelling

Students will have spelling words weekly which will be written in their Navigator Guides for that week. Students will work on "Word Work" throughout the week during Reading. I require that students turn in 3 pieces of word work from the following list. However, I RECOMMEND students practice the words at home as well. They will be tested every Friday on these words. If the student does not finish the work in class then it becomes homework. 

 

**You may get creative and do something not on this list. Please share with me anything that helps your child become succesful. I would love to add it to the list!
