Spelling/ Vocabulary

Spelling/Vocabulary will be done with the EC teacher or in the general education classroom according to your child's needs.   Please refer to your child's planner or teacher for more specific information.

Some students will be doing word study and other students might be doing vocabulary that is generated from the general education classroom weekly text.  The specific needs will be assessed in the beginning of the school year and determined  by the EC teacher and the general education teacher based on needs.



                    Word Study in the EC classroom is broken up into two weeks.  

-Week one focuses on spelling and sorting the words by pattern sounds and/or spelling pattern.  Your child will complete a sort at the beginning of the week in the EC classroom.  This sort will be glues into your child's notebook.  The assessment at the end of each week will be in the same format (see link below).  They will practice nightly according to the homework assignment list that is glued into the front of the their notebook. You can always print this sort or create on in the notebook. Word study/ spelling assessments are each Friday (subject to change).

-Week two focuses on vocabulary.  Each student  will receive definitions and activities at the beginning of the week.  They will practice nightly according to the homework assignments list that is glued into the front of their notebook.  Vocabulary assessments will take place at the end of week two (subject to change).

Weekly lists (with definitions) will be given by the EC teacher at the beginning of each week.  The lists are generated from the text that is worked on in the classroom each week.  Homework assignments practice comes from a list that is glued into the from of the vocabulary notebook. Assignments are due at the end of each week and will be checked by the EC teacher.  Assessments will take place at the end of each week (subject to change).
