Spelling Word Work Homework
Due on Friday
*Staple your 4 activities to this page
Note to Families,
Your child has been assessed and assigned a series of spelling patterns and sorts that he/she is developmentally
ready to learn. The pattern was taught and is being practiced in class. The activities below, will continue to
reinforce the new learning as it becomes muscle memory~ automatic. It is our goal that your child should be able
to understand what they mean and read other words with this pattern, increasing writing and reading skills, along
with overall understanding.
Thank you for your support!
