The phonics skills are becoming increasingly difficult and more than one spelling for a similar sound is being mixed together. Therefore this week’s spelling words will be a review of previous “bossy r” words. Words with the r controlled vowels will be retested to ensure that students can identify the difference between when to use /ar/, /or/, /er/, /ir/, /ur/. Students can review r controlled vowels online at Starfall.com by doing activities under #12, 13, & 14. Additional bossy r activities can be found online by clicking here.
*Be sure you are completing the 3rd quarter spelling homework.
