Week of April 16

This Week’s Feature:

Spelling Pattern: Words from French and Spanish
Words that came into the English language from French and from Spanish often have unusual spellings.  The French influence causes the letters ch, as in brochure, to sound like \sh\ and the letter g, as in camouflage, to sound like \zh\ or\j\.  Many English words taken from Spanish end in o, such as patio.  Look for other English words that came from French or from Spanish when you read and write.

This Week’s Special Spelling Practice Activity:

Student Choice

Each week, you complete a special spelling practice activity to help you to study the words.  Since this is your last spelling list, you may choose any of the special spelling practice activities to complete.  Turn the work from your activity in to Ms. M., along with your weekly word sort and spelling story.  Do not forget that for homework, you must also study your spelling words for Friday’s spelling test.


Choose the word sort for your group:
