Spelling - 45 Letter Sounds


Walt : use different spelling patterns and strategies to increase my word knowledge.

There are 45 letters sounds in the English language.  Sometimes these sounds are made by one letter and sometimes they are a made by a group of letters together.  Learning these letter sounds will help me spell unknown tricky words and increase my word knowledge.

Reading - New Vocabulary

Walt : actively seek to extend my knowledge of new vocabulary.

During the year I will be trying my hardest to learn new words.    When I come across a new word in my reading I will record it in my word clarification spreadsheet.  I will find the meaning of the word and then find other words that mean the same eg. synonyms.

I will try and use my new words that I learn in my writing.
