Word Study assessment next week!

Posted on September 26, 2012. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , , |

Hi everyone,

In precisely one week from today, we will have our first word study assessment.  (This is no estimate; we know for certain it is one week away!)  Hopefully, your fears of studying these new words have abated by now, and you are being industrious in your study methods.  A fear of studying new words is an epidemic that we can easily avoid. Once you acknowledge that it is as easy as studying the words a little each day, and in multiple (fun) formats, those initial fears really do become irrelevant — it is as if the fears have been evicted from your mind forever. 

Studying your words does not have to be a difficult or devastating trek, and it certainly shouldn’t make you feel infuriated. Word study is not a precise science, and so you will need to be a bit impartial as you select your study methods until you find what works best for you.  Make sure that you are having fun with the methods you select.  The worst thing you could do is to sham your way through the studying, because then you certainly won’t learn anything.  Remember that you can each be an agent of support and a good resource for one another.  I’m confident that soon enough you will all be authorities on these words.  🙂

Which methods are you using to study?  Which words are still giving you the most trouble?  How is the study guide sheet helping you?  Share your ideas and experiences here in the comments section…and try to use as many of the words in your comments as you can!  

Don’t forget about our word study site for resources to help you review and practice!

I loved that you incorporated all the wordly wise words into the blog post! I have made flash cards and I have done the packet with all the activities that have to do with the words. Studying has made me remember most of the words! 🙂
