    Late Work / Corrections Policy 

    • We have started the second trimester. Fourth grade's correction and late policy has changed.  Please look through Monday Folders with your child for any papers that need corrections.  Please refer to the updated policy below.



    If you are looking for a new and exciting way to student spelling words with your child, here are some suggestions:

    • Fill a pan with sand, uncooked rice, uncooked beans, flour, sugar, salt, or shaving cream and spell the words using your finger.
    • Make up a song or saying for an especially challenging word.
    • Play Hangman.
    • Rainbow write the words.
    • Make flash cards with the spelling words on index cards.  Then flip all the cards over and play the memory game.
    • Use magnetic letters, or alphabet blocks, or scrabble tiles to spell out the words.
    • Make a "cootie catcher" using the spelling words.
    • Write the words outside with chalk.
    • Form letters with play dough, pipe cleaners, legos, toothpicks, or string.
    • Throw the ball with a partner and spell out the next letter in the word every time you catch the ball.
    • Finger paint the words.
    • Repeat the word out loud, then spell the word out loud.  Then, look up and watch yourself write the word in the air using your finger: say the letter as you write it.  Then write the word down on the whiteboard/piece of paper.
