Through the program Just Words, this reading class utilizes a structured multisensory approach to reading. It is an intensive look at word structure in the English Language. The instruction includes the six syllable types in the English Language, common Latin roots, high frequency words, and vocabulary. Spelling rules are also taught to mastery.
PARCC Tests this week on 5/12 & 5/14/15.
We continue to work on spelling rules to mastery. These are great to work on at home, and can be accessed by clicking the following link.
Currently, we are finishing Unit 12 of the program. We will begin the last of the 6 syllable types in the English language: consonant-l-e. We've completed closed, open, v-e, double vowel, and r-controlled. We've also covered spelling rules for each of those syllable types for changing and unchanging base words and the meaning and spelling of common roots and affixes. The double vowel syllables are the most difficult for students since there are so many spelling options for those sounds.

What Else Happens in this Reading Class?
We incorporate other interventions for reading and writing, and if needed, spend some time building skills students need support with in the Literacy classroom.
