Why Word Study instead of Spelling Tests?
Good Question.  Frank Nicholas first and second grade teachers explain...
West Carrollton City Schools are transitioning from the traditional spelling tests to Word Study. Word Study, which is a new approach to teaching spelling, is based on learning word patterns rather than memorizing unrelated words. The goal is to reach a higher level of spelling based on what the students already know. Word Study builds word knowledge that can be applied in both reading and writing. Since it’s linked to these subjects, it will help develop students’ abilities in phonics, word recognition, and vocabulary.
Phonics + Spelling + Vocabulary = Word Study
