We are starting a new spelling program this year: Words Their Way. WTW is an individualized approach that focuses on the skills each child needs to develop into a stronger speller. The third grade spelling goal is to have the students write the grade 3 priority words correctly in their daily writing by the end of the school year. Throughout the year, the kids will be introduced to a larger group of words known as core words. Students will be exposed to these words, and they will be “recycled” during the year through a variety of activities, as well as during the end of the week spelling check-ins. There will also be optional vocabulary/spelling challenges for students.
There are six social studies/science themes that we will be studying this year. If you have any resources or expertise in any of the following areas, please contact me!
