Reading and Spelling

Reading and Spelling are such a large part of our daily lives and room 6 is working hard to take as much in as possible.  The students are always in the process of finding as many Marvelous Words as they can while reading novels, short stories, magazines, newspapers and anything that has words printed on it, even cereal boxes.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!!!  

This year we will be reading many multi-cultural stories that take us visually into countries all over the world. 

Every week we have a spelling list that includes words from our reading.  Some weeks the students will be able to choose their spelling words.  We will incorporate writing definitions and creating sentences as well as poetry to help with comprehension and spelling practice.
