Reading Calendars are due every Monday. At least 20 minutes of free choice reading, 5 nights a week must be recorded on the Reading Calendar. 

Word Study Homework 

Every other Monday-Word lists are worked with in class on two-week rotations. Every other Monday a word list comes home-cut word cards like we do in class and keep in the envelope in the back of your notebook when not in use (make sure you take the previous week’s cards out and keep in a safe place in your house to review later).

Complete one of the following two activities 
(Due the Friday of the 1st week new words are given):

  • Rainbow Words- Write (in your notebook) any 10 of your words (does not have to be the 10 you chose in class, but they can’t be any oddball words) three times each using the Rainbow Words technique. This is when you write each word one time in one color (using crayons or colored pencils, NO markers, please) and then go over each word with two more colors to create ‘rainbow’ words. You can also review the spelling of your words using the word cards and sort them, like we do in class.
  • OR...
  • ABC Order-Write (in your notebook) any 10 of your words (does not have to be the 10 you chose in class, but they can’t be any oddball words) in ABC order. You can also review the spelling of your words using the word cards and sort them, like we do in class.
