Spelling Home Learning
Term 5 Week 1
I have attached a list of some of the tricky words that we have been focusing on over this term. The words at the start of the list are those that we have given out in previous week's spelling home learning.
Step 1: Read the list and make sure you can fluently read these words. Remember, they are tricky words so we don't want to be using our phonics skills to read them.
Step 2: Underline any words which you struggled to read. Write them on flashcards and put them up in your room. Try and read them every time you see them.
Step 3: Take the first 10 words on the list.
How many of these can you spell accurately? Get a member of your family to test you.
Step 4: Make a list of the words which you struggled to spell. Practise spelling them regularly using the Read, Say, Cover, Write, Check technique.
Step 5: When you are ready, move on to the next 10 spellings.
EXTENSION: If you are looking for an extra challenge, can you use 1, 2 or even 3 of these words in a fully punctuated sentence?
