Elementary School’s Open House
Our school thoughtfully selected Columbus Day as their open house; many government agencies are closed today. Since, we live in the suburbs of Washington D.C., many parents are able to attend open house including my husband and myself. We enjoyed watching both of our children interact with their teachers and fellow students; it was an extremely pleasant experience. They were definitely several humorous moments as we observed the students.
Of course, I surveyed the classroom and noticed in my son’s classroom the wall words, which are also sight words. Since my son is in second grade, the expectation is much higher; he must read, spell and write these words correctly.
Second Grade Wall Words – Ten Sight Words
The ten sight words noted above are also in the sight word board game, Erudition™. Many of the sight words included in this game do not follow typical phonics or spelling rules. Children must memorize how to spell these words. When we play Erudition™, we read the word and definition to our son and he must spell the word correctly to earn his bonus roll.
