October is here!

Seeing as today was the first day of a new month, it seemed a fitting day to start our in school spelling program.  They have 9 words and a challenge word to learn each week – this week our words are:



























-et family



-in family



-ap family



net



pin



nap



wet



win



tap



get



sin



lap



Challenge word: the



 

Mondays we will be talking about the word families and doing our spelling worksheet, Tuesday we will be doing word work with the words in stations, and Wednesdays we will have a spelling test.  If the students get them right they are done for the week (other than in class reviews to support learning) if they have some mistakes they will practice them Thursday and have a re-test Friday.

We will be using books and activities that include these word families to help them understand where the word fit into the bigger scheme of things and begin being more comfortable through real life use.

I also handed out the October scripture verses (Psalm 103) – but the students have until Friday to say the September verse since you all got them a little late.

Blessings,

Mrs. Hildebrand
