Fourth Grade Weekly Reading and Spelling

READING:  A story is introduced each week.  Students work on vocabulary, comprehension, reading strategies, skills, and phonics through whole group and small group instruction. The students work on projects, activities, and workbooks.  A test on the reading selection is given each Friday.  The students are graded on tests, homework, class participation, notebooks, and oral fluency.

SPELLING:  The spelling words correlate to our reading story each week.  There are twenty new words, three review words, two challenge words and a surprise bonus word each week.  New words and spelling patterns are introduced at the beginning of the week.  A test is given each Friday.
