(Spelling) Word cards for first 4 weeks here

Week 1

(Spelling/Phonics) Compound Words File Folder game (game to use instead of the Activity)
(Writing Activity sheet) Worksheet for child to use when brainstorming and using Descriptive Words here

Week 2

Zebra really struggled with the spelling words this week. There were just too many long words for her to deal with.

**NOTE** (Added 14/4/10) We have persisted until week 5 with the spelling words but are giving up on the Sonlight spelling words part of LA2 for the moment so will not be adding anymore spelling activities. I don't have the finances at the moment to add in either the Explode the code or the Wordly Wise books. Instead we will be doing our own spelling activities based around the THRASS chart.

(Writing Activity Sheet) Verbs. There are lots of activities listed in this squidoo lens on Verbs.
