We have watch your video on your word work and how it was developed. I teach third grade and we are interested in setting up our word work like you have yours. The question I have is what are the other grade levels doing with word work in your building? Do you have consistency across grade levels? We really liked the F and P continuum of learning. We saw that you created a list of patterns that would be addressed throughout the school year. Do the other grade levels have that as well?
Thank you for sharing your information.
