    Word Walls and Spelling
    By Kelly

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Our school is trying a new approach this year. We have found that kids get the words right on the Friday quiz, but then spell them incorrectly the same day or next day in their stories. We are trying the Patricia Cunningham approach. I teach grade 4 so the resource I'm using is Phonics for the Upper grades (or something like that). It uses a word wall; talks about spelling patterns (i.e. if you don't know how to spell a word, think about what it rhymes with...most likely it has the same spelling pattern); making words, etc. It's a great resource. It might be worth a read. Good luck!
