Spelling Week of March 4-8

Dear Parents,

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.
