Developing Thoughtful Spellers - Guided Spelling for 2nd Grade Scholars
Help me give my students an effective daily guided spelling program to enhance their writing, reading, and thinking skills. This CCC program includes guided sound wall cards, black line masters, a teaching manual, and student spelling books.
We are an energetic and colorful learning community. Our neighborhood school is in a large, complex, diverse, urban district. This is our fourth year as a "new" school and have grown each year since we have opened. It is exciting to be a part of such a vibrant community.
Our diverse classrooms are inclusive of people who have different needs or views than our own, and are centered around students making academic progress and showing growth as classroom and school community members.
We leverage student interests, backgrounds, and curiosities to engage them in active learning.
We embrace diversity here! Do we have ELL students? Yes! Students who fall on the autism spectrum, sure! Kids with low socio-economic status, absolutely! Kids who have some advantages over some of their classmates, yup! A wide variety of skin tones, cultural backgrounds, ethnicities? Yes, yes, yes. Kids who need additional enrichment or need a little extra help throughout the day...of course, of course.
At our school, we take kids for who they are and help them grow and discover who they can be as scholars, community members, and fellow humans.
The CCC Guided Spelling program is a research-based, year long curriculum that is a companion program to how we approach reading, writing, word study, and vocabulary in my second grade classroom. Through this program, students learn to become thoughtful spellers and master the high frequency words they need to be successful readers and writers.
We'll explore spelling every day for 15 minutes through teacher-directed, multi-sensory, and interactive lessons.
And this will lead my students to more routinely recognize and utilize the spelling skills that can make their work shine!
Students will focus on vowel patterns and learn to add endings and recognize when to double final consents or drop a final-e.
This program helps students learn strategies for spelling and memorizing regular and irregular developmentally appropriate words.
