These students submitted an application and were interviewed by a team of teachers for consideration for this wonderful leadership opportunity. These students research their own facts on weather, sports and other interesting facts. Under the guidance of Mrs. Dakhlallah, these students have been following a set sequence each day of the week.

Kindergarten Spelling

As part of the Dearborn Public Schools English Language Arts Program, we will now begin administering spelling tests weekly.  The spelling test will include 3 high frequency words we have been working on as well as 2 words with a specific spelling pattern.  For example, this week’s words will be from the –at family.  Students will be given 2 words from the –at family to study during the week.  An additional 2 words from the –at family will be tested typically on Friday to see if the students demonstrate an understanding of the specific spelling pattern.  For this week, the 2 additional words will be from the –at family.  Students will be given several opportunities to practice the words at school; however, it is important that they practice at home each night as well using their NEW spelling notebook.  We know this is new for the kids and right now we are focusing on the process not just the test results.

This week’s spelling words are:

I

a

the

bat

cat

Plus 2 other words from the –at family (such as fat, sat, mat, pat, hat)

Thank you for helping your child to practice their spelling words for 5-10 minutes each night in their spelling notebook.
