Without an accepted curriculum for spelling, the 4th and 5th grade teachers at Truckee Elementary have found and piloted spelling websites in the past two years.
We have agreed upon the site SpellingClassroom.com for our spelling needs. This site allows students to practice spelling words through games and fun activities. Then they take a quiz on both the spelling of the words and their meanings. Students may work at their own pace, thus differentiating the lessons for each child. We decided that it made sense if all the classes were using the same program, including the Resource teacher. We are therefore asking for eight "Package B" licenses, which allow for up to 35 students each, and one "Package A" license for the Resouce teacher. Package A allows 25 students. We will only get the package we actually need when we get our classes in the fall. Each Package B license is $79.98 per year and the Package A license is $69.98.
