Each week we work on new High Frequency Words. These words are important! We have to know how to spell some of them, but we should be able to read all of them by the end of first grade. We practice them every day in class with flash cards. We post them each week on a cumulative word wall that we can reference in our writing. Once a week we have a parent volunteer come and test us and give us new words to work on (thanks Heather - Ela's mom!). We keep a ring of the words we are working on in our browsing boxes so that we can practice them every morning! You should work on them at home too! Knowing these words will help us become better readers!
