I hope that you all had a fantastic holiday. Three weeks is a long break and there are quite a few sleepy bodies around today.
With regards to spelling, the students have completed all the second grade high frequency words and this week we will begin to look at the Words their Way program. The students are going to be grouped according to their spelling level (the test focuses on sounds rather than whole words) so students will learn a spelling pattern rather than a word in isolation.
A reminder that students are able to bring extra reading books home from the class library if they wish, but they are responsible for organising this themselves. I am joking with them, that now they are Grade 2.5 and soon will be in G3 and so we need to get them super independent.
The homework and newsletter is coming home today for your reference, but the spelling list I will send with your child once I have explained their spelling pattern.
I hope you’re having a great Sunday and again, happy new year and all the very best for 2018 🙂
