A note to parents
following slides are pictures that I have taken
on our school campus and in the city of Brentwood,
California. Included on each slide are some
ideas for word detective study. Teachers
can print out pages for in-class challenges or
purpose of these pages is to make students and
parents more aware of our spelling and decoding
system. The pages are designed to help parents
see how they can help their child at home.
Simple rules and patterns will be featured on
are encouraged to work directly with their child
on the challenges. Make it a family activity.
you're driving in the car, riding your bike, or
walking down the street, in the mall or
grocery store----be a word detective. Look
at those signs. What do you see? What
do you notice? Look for those little words
inside of big words. Look for rules.
