The best way to improve spelling is to read. As you have noticed, in addition to reading, we have included a spelling list with our required homework assignments.
We have noticed that the children are misspelling basic, first-grade sight words in their writing.
The list is to bring to your attention the words that the children should know in preparation for the third grade and to provide an opportunity to practice the words at home. Once the test has been given, we are holding the children responsible for correctly spelling the words every time they write them. We would greatly appreciate if you could hold the same standard at home.
A new second grade family has shared some effective strategies on how to learn and remember the spelling words.
