Welcome BCA families,
Hi BCA Families,
This week in spelling we are working with vowel teams. The spelling rule has students looking at vowel sounds that may only make one sound but the words are spelled with a team of two vowels.
Examples airfare- vowel team ai
reveal- vowel team ea.
Your students spelling list is attached.
Thanks Mrs. Lopez
Hi BCA Parents,
This week's spelling rule allows students to learn beginning prefix sounds and their meanings. They learn what a prefix is and how the meaning of prefixes can change the meaning of their spelling words.
Pre- meaning before
dis- not; opposite
in- not; opposite
mis- wrong, or mistaken
Our 4th/5th grade team has worked really hard to bring, something new and exciting to your child's math learning.
Students will test on this List November 29.
Students will have extra time over Thanksgiving break to study and work on their spelling contract.
Each week students are responsible for finishing their spelling Fast Track. The spelling track consists of numerous activities that allow the students to practice their spelling words and the spelling rule for that week. Students are given a list every Monday of 20 words individually selected to their ability.
Attached is a copy of what the students are working on in class.
These spelling words will be used in their week three spelling. We will study these words from November 8, 2012- November 15th. They will take their spelling test on these words on Thursday November 15,2012.
