Psalter tunes web site



Psalter tunes web site

If you are unfamiliar with some of the psalter tunes that we have chosen for memory work this year, here is a website that has the tunes available in a midi format.

http://www.prca.org/resources/categories/psalter/

I find that it works quite well.

Spelling Hints and Spelling city website






As we work on our spelling lists, here are some fun ways to study at home!

Wordo—Played just like the game Bingo, but this version uses sight words instead of numbers on a grid card.
Concentration—Sight word concentration cards can easily be made using index cards. Simply write each word on two cards, shuffle and lay face down to play.
Word Searches—Create word searches featuring sight words or use one of the many available on the Internet.
Go Fish—Go fish cards can easily be made using index cards. Simply write each word on two cards, shuffle and deal to play.
Playdough Words-Using playdough, have your child roll (make “snakes”) one letter at a time to spell the sight word. Your child can practice saying the sight word as he/she rolls it.
Sand Words-Using a metal baking sheet, sprinkle some sand (or salt or cornstarch) onto it so a thin layer is created. Ask your child to choose a word and write the word in the sand using his/her pointer finger. Ask your child to say the word created in the sand. Shake the tray carefully to erase the word.
Shaving Cream Words-Using a counter or table top, squirt some shaving cream onto the level surface and smooth out to a thin layer. Ask your child to choose a word and write the word in the shaving cream using his/her pointer finger. Ask your child to say the word. Smooth hand over the shaving cream to erase the word.

At school we have been using the computer room and logging on to the website:

www.spellingcity.com

Once on the site, go to "find a list"
where it will ask you to find a teacher. (please enter my first and last name with a space between)
then you should find find my name coming up. click on it
once on the site for our class, go to the list # that we are studying, we play the "free" games (unless you are willing to sign your child up)
