**This follows McGraw Hill's Wonder's reading program.**
Each week, students will get one page back-to-back. This can be done whole class, in a center, small group, or independently.
Each page has the core spelling words. The weekly skill is labeled each week. Students need to know the skill and be able to identify the spelling pattern so that they can use it outside the spelling test.
Day one is usually some sort of word sort so that students can identify the spelling patterns.
Day 2 is usually matching definitions to the words.
Day 3 is a fill in the blank so that students can gain contextual meaning of the words.
Day 4 is an editing day to reinforce the correct spelling in context.
Day 5 should be the spelling test, so there is no word study that day.
