Word Study Cutouts

              This year every week we cut out a word sort . We get words that we sort in a category like the word skate where we drop the e and add ing so skating goes in the e-drop category, or the word yell goes in (vcc) because yell has -ell. Then we look at our spelling menu and find an activity, like for example, write each of your 23 words in your neatest handwriting 3x. Another activity that helps us learn our words and patterns is writing 10 words with a line in the vowels place that’s called missing vowels, and then filling in the vowels. At the end of each week we get a quiz sheet and go in a quiet place in the room, we write down categories and partners read each other’s words . After if we want extra credit we write 3 sentences and each of them has to have 1 or more spelling words in each sentence like I was waving my hand to signal the taxi   Without a spelling mistake.
