Fundations Notes see links at the bottom of the page for quarterly word lists
The following words are the Fundation Trick Words your child will be expected to read and spell correctly. These words will be sent home at the beginning of each quarter to be practiced nightly. We will test on these words at the end of each quarter. These words will be sent home to be made into flash cards. Please review new flash cards with your child for a few minutes per night. Please keep all sets of cards at home and review all words periodically. These words will help us to be more fluent readers and writers. Each week these words will be added to the Word Wall in our classroom. The children will be able to use the word wall while writing in their journals. During the week we will do a variety of activities with our words. We will chant, spell, and sing the words to get a lot of exposure to them. We will test on these words at the end of each quarter. Remember we are striving for automaticity.
