All spelling homework will be assigned daily and be due on Friday. Make sure you put the proper heading on each page:
Name - top right corner
Class # - top right corner
Date - top right corner
Heading - first line of your lined paper Monday's heading would be "Draw Pictures" Tuesday's heading would be "Word Associations" Wednesday's heading would be "Tree Map Groupings"
If you have questions, see Ms. Rozelle
Choose 10 words (especially the ones you missed in the pretest)
Write a complete sentence with that word
Illustration your sentence
Write each word and then a word associated with that word
for example: for "cream" you might write the word "ice cream" or "whipping cream" for "gray" you might think of the word "storm" or "color"
Make a tree mapping categorizing the spelling words in any way. Maybe 5 words have and "y" ending; maybe 3 words have the long "a" sound; maybe 4 words have to do with dessert and sweets; maybe 3 words have "ai" in the middle or "ea" in the middle ...
Be creative and find those patterns that you can group together! Be sure to label each tree map section.
