3 Reading - reading as a class, in a group, and independently throughout the day Writing – start the day with writing Word Study – different groups that can be dynamic Language Arts

4 Independent reading daily in class Read 20 minutes each night A variety of genres Blog A student in the 20 th percentile reads books for.7 minutes per day. This adds up to 21,000 word read per year. A student in the 80% percentile reads books for 14.2 minutes per day. This adds up to 1,146,000 words per year. A student in the 90 th percentile reads for 21.1 minutes per day. This adds up to 1,823,000 words per year. A student in the 98% percentile reads for 65 minutes per day. This adds up to 4,358,000 words per year! 40 Book Challenge

5 Alternative developmental approach to traditional spelling instruction Instruction is differentiated for different levels of word knowledge Provides students with an understanding of how words work so they can transfer what they learn to new words Word Study

6 Students sort words into groups under the headers and explain the spelling generalization. Blind Sort/Blind Written Sort: Place the headers on a table. Parent calls out words without the student seeing them. Student points to group the word belongs in and places it there if they choose the correct group. Word Study

7 More ways to help Written Sort (pretest): Student writes the headers on paper. Parent calls out each word. Student writes the word in the correct group. After every assignment: The student should read each word in a group and tell why the words are in the group. Word Study
