Word Study

Words Their Way

We practice spelling throughout the day.  Our spelling program is broken into four parts:

  • Phonics – children learn a phonics principle and apply it in their spelling.

  • Sight Word Practice – children practice spelling their sight words.These words have been introduced in another part of the day.We practice only words that have been introduced and placed on our word wall.

  • Rhyme Time – children work on word families.

  • Super Duper Bonus Word – Just for fun, the children love to spell big words or holiday words.


If a word is posted somewhere around the room, it is expected to be spelled correctly in written work.
