I usually send the first page home the day we start a new unit. We go over the pattern by creating an anchor chart and they jot it down in their spelling notebook. We also discuss the 3rd grade non-negotiable words that students will be tested on.
Page 2: We do this page together as guided practice.
Page 3: This is independent practice
Page 4: Dictation Test (I tell my students that they need to circle the words that follow the pattern and the non-negotiable words as well)
