Our class will be using Sitton Spelling.  The Sitton Spelling philosophy is that words aren't really "mastered" until they are spelled correctly in everyday writing.  Many students can memorize words for a "Friday Test," but if there is no transfer to student writing, what's the point?  Second graders are responsible to learn "core words" from a list of most commonly used in everyday writing. 
     I will incorporate spelling rules, phonics, and word patterns into my daily Spelling lessons.  Each week students will be given 5 core words as well as 10 additional words that corrolate with our weekly phonics skill.  Please help your child study and use these words in context at home.
