Spelling

On this page will find the spelling words we are focusing on for the week. Each week there will be 10 spelling words. You will see there are six black words and 4 colourful words. Every student does the black words, then the student do the four coloured words depending on what group they are in. The students will know which group they are in by the beginning of Week 2 Term 1.

Some weeks, the words will be a combination of the sound we are focusing on as well as words they spell wrong in their writing.

Each week we do a range of activities within the class such as Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check (LCSWC), Sounds, colourful words, sentences etc. It is important students don’t just learn how to spell the words but also understand what they mean so they can expand their vocabulary and use new words in their writing.

If you choose to work on these words at home with your child you could play games with them, such as ask them to spell the words while driving in the car, try to find the words while reading a book, ask them to tell you a sentence with one of the words in it.

Students will be given a new list of words each Monday, during the week we will do activities on their words.

  1. Hi Renee, re:find 4 more words in work books.

    Are we finding qu words? Will the kids be doing this during class?

    Regards
    Tara & Ethan 😃

    • Hi. The students will be doing this in the class. They do not need to be “qu” words. They can be any words they are spelling incorrectly in the Literacy Book this way they create a spelling list based on words they repeatedly use in their writing and therefore they will hopefully learn how to spell those words correctly.
