 Reading News
I am excited to tell you about a new program I am using this year called Wilson Reading.  This program uses visual and kinesthetic strategies to ensure mastery of foundational skills of language structure.  These skills are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and without mastery of these foundational skills, the student can not successfully achieve grade level reading beyond third grade.

 Spelling News
Spelling will also look different this year because it is embedded in the reading program.  As the students practice phonemic sounds and learn basic rules, they will use those learned skills to listen for the sounds in words and identify the spelling that goes along with it.  Just as students will "tap" a word to blend and read, they will "tap" a word and listen to spell.  They will not bring home a list of Spelling words to just memorize.  Their spelling words will include sounds and words we have worked on throughout the week.  This is a skill that can be used in their writing when the words they want to use are not in their memory bank.
