Next week will be the -an word family: Tan, Man, etc.
Below are some tips I’ve sent parents on how to teach spelling words, letters, and sounds.
The best way I would teach your student would be to make sure they understand all the words end with -ad. After that just teach them to hear the first sound in the word. M-ad, s-ad, etc. We are trying to teach first sounds so we want them to hear the first sound and understand all the words end with the same word family -ad.
I’ve found the best way is to have flash cards that have both a picture and a letter. The way we do this in class is say the picture first, the letter, and the sound three times.
Example: Apple – A – Sound, sound, sound.
Also, only do about six or seven letters at a time for a few days, and then switch to new ones. I hope these things help. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks,
Shawn Miehlke

Update!

Parents,

Today your student will be bringing home their September homework packets and their weekly spelling words. Please keep the homework packet at home until the end of the month when it is ready to turn in. The students will be expected to write out the spelling words by themselves on Friday for our spelling test. We will practice the words in class, but you will need to practice them at home as well. The spelling words are the following: sad, mad, had, dad, pad, bad. If you have any questions let me know.

Thanks,
Shawn Miehlke
