Weekly Spelling Lists

Your children will each have their own individualized spelling list every 7-10 days. Children are pre-assessed using the 1,400 high frequency words in the English language. These are the words that are written and read the most they are called Frye Words. While we focus upon these words daily in our classroom it is also a good idea to study them at home. Some great ways to enhance your child's retention of these spelling patterns in each word would be to : have them spell words on the refrigerator using letter magnets, type them on the computer, clap and snap them in the car, or write them in the air. below are some online activities that also support these words. I have posted more fun ways to practice these words below. Please click on the PDF to download them. If for any reason you are unable to access them this way please let me know and I will send home a paper copy.
