Mrs. Franco's Class

Here's what is happening in our class!


Each week we will work on a common third grade spelling pattern. We will have a spelling test every Friday. The entire year of spelling words is available on Mrs. Rooke’s Spelling City website in case you’d like to get a jump start over the weekend. To access the games visit and up at the top click on “Search” then “Teachers/Parents” and enter her name, Jennifer Rooke.


Your child will be practicing these words in class but it is their responsibility to work on them mainly at home. Please use the suggestions listed below for ideas on how your child can practice these words at home but feel free to come up with your own ideas as well.


It is very important to learn and master these spelling patterns because they appear daily in our reading. The idea is, if your child can spell the words, chances are they can read them. Thank you for all of your help!
