Today we discussed what sort of words we should choose for our five self selected spelling words. We came up with these ideas to consider when choosing words:

interesting
challenging
connected to a unit
unusual spelling
a word that you always spell wrong
a new word from a book you were reading
relevant

Remember on a Monday night you have to complete a spelling sentence for each word. These are your first five spelling words and you also have five of your own. Spelling sentences are due each Tuesday morning.

Class spelling words
communities
individuals
organisation
organise
interconnectedness

I think these are good spelling words because they are related to U.O.I.

That is a good point Thaddeus, I'm glad you think that is important. It will help you to think about that when you choose your spelling words.

Lucia... you needed to take your book home with the spellings in them to write your sentences. You will have to do them tomorrow.
