Starting on Monday, September 17, our class will begin a weekly routine: a weekly dictée (French) or 'Big 10' Spelling (English). We will alternate with one week of Dictée followed by one week of Spelling. Students will be expected to know the correct spelling of the words and show that they are able to use words correctly within a sentence. This routine will be modified in January.
The two main goals of our September-December dictée/spelling are to establish a nightly, home review routine (where students grow increasingly independent) and to expand our vocabulary!
