Word Study Program: Tuesday - Friday Activities

By Beth Newingham on February 28, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

Each week of our word study program [link to Tip 106: Monday's Activities] continues as described below.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: In school, students rotate though a variety of word study centers, spending 25–30 minutes in each one. The centers help them practice both the pattern-based spelling words and their assigned high frequency words.

Friday: This is the day of the weekly spelling test and when the weekly word study homework packet is to be returned. The tests are corrected and returned to students so that they can record any misspelled words on their "Words to Learn" list and highlight any high frequency words that they spelled correctly.

I teach 1st grade and I was very impressed Beth with this word study program. It is important for students to know about words, look at their patterns, be able to understand them in language-Not just memorize for a spelling test! Fantastic Job!
