Okay...so I have been completely distracted from blog world for the past several months as I have been learning how to teach thirdies to prepare for state testing. I had to teach myself how to do these things first...yikes! Talk about feeling like an old dog!! Okay so testing starts Tuesday and I am so ready for my kiddos to just knock it out of the park!! They have worked so hard and I am so proud of them!
So...I titled this post Word Study because I am so curious what everyone out there does for Word Study or Spelling. Our district has no set curriculum for this area and we all do things a little differently. I am following alot of the ideas and suggestions Beth Newingham discussed on her blog post for Scholastic. I also have the Fountas and Pinnel word study set as well as the Words Their Way books. I try to use all these resources to make word study a meaningful time in the day for my kiddos.
I would love to read all about what you all do for this in your classrooms or districts.
You are awesome to the core–teacher printable
