SPELLING: We use JCS (Johnny Can Spell) to establish knowledge of phonogram-sound relationships. We will also be using these for sight word practice. Our spelling words are 2nd grade Frye words. Each week we will practice dictation of words, sounds and sentences. These will reinforce the students study practices as well as count as an occasional grade. These will only be done in class. Please encourage your student to study nightly. The spelling test will be given on Friday only.
PHONICS: We study a variety of skills used to establish a strong foundation in reading. We will study digraphs, hard and soft sounds, prefixes and suffixes, types of sentences and correct punctuation, and much more. We will also use these skills to improve their reading fluency and retelling ability.
