Weekly Spelling Pattern
A note about 3rd grade spelling:
Our focus in spelling is to teach students spelling patterns that they will encounter as they read and write. We would rather have our students learn patterns and effectively apply them while reading and writing than focus solely on memorizing a list of 15 words, but not learn the pattern. Therefore, we will not be giving a set list of words to memorize. We will practice words that have examples of the weekly pattern that will be similar to those on the test.
