3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Resource Materials
Our Spelling curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year is called Words Their Way. Students took placement spelling tests during the first few days of school, and based upon the results of these tests, students have been placed in their appropriate group.
Students are given 20-30 words that follow a specific pattern on Mondays, and given assignments to complete throughout the week. Spelling tests are given on Fridays, and 10 of the words are chosen for the test. This shows if they are able to understand the pattern, as opposed to memorizing each word.
The word of God … is at work in you believers. 1 Thessalonians 2:13
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
We, though many, are one body in Christ. Romans 12:5
So then you are … built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone. Ephesians 2:19-20
