Teacher Insights 

Reading Rockets:  Introduction to Spelling (website)

Reading Rockets:  Word Study Instruction (website) 

  • Students are expected to use all of the spelling patterns they have studied correctly.  

  • Word Walls in a classroom will help students have quick access to grade level words.

  • The purpose of this standard is for students to recognize incorrectly spelled grade-appropriate words and fix them.

  • Students should also have access to a dictionary to look up word spellings.  

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
