Why Is It Spelled That Way?

2nd-8th graders
These classes are designed to give students an introduction to understanding how English words are structured to help them begin to understand there is a logic to English spellings. By beginning to develop this understanding, it will assist students in improving their encoding (spelling) and decoding (reading) words based on the true structure of the English language. It may also assist them with improving their vocabulary.
