This year the fifth grade team will be using the spelling program, "Words Their Way." It is a differentiated program based on the current level of the students' spelling capabilities. It is flexible and changeable as the child progresses through the spelling patterns. In our room this year, we will have three spelling groups based on a pre-test that students took in the fall. As students show progress or difficulty with certain spelling patterns, groups are easily changeable. We meet several times per week to discuss the spelling patterns presented for the two-week lesson.
You will find the spelling lists/tests included on this page.
