Word Study Update

In the spirit of writing descriptive paragraphs in Social Studies, we will begin working on editing full paragraphs each morning during D.O.L. We will familiarize the kids with these symbols of standard editing, and we will challenge the kids to edit and revise their own writing.

In our word sort work, we have been revisiting all of the patterns of the long vowels in general, and syllabication in particular. The kids this week will finish the work with long-u by sorting words with the long-u pattern into 1st and 2nd syllable categories.
