School (remote and in-person learning) starts next week for our district. Therefore, I am busy creating lesson plans for this quarter. I’m trying to make this homeschooling experience as normal as possible for my child. It’s going to be challenging for us, and for you. I hope the weekly spelling lessons help ease some of the tension, worry, stress, and anxiety in your home.
Feel free to copy/paste/print any of the material below.
Spelling list – words with the short and long “a” vowel sounds
