Spelling Homework for grade 7, week of 1/22 - 1/26 (THREE assignments)

TUESDAY - Title: Spelling classification/SLE 4 (Due on WEDNESDAY)

Directions:

1. On your paper make two columns.

2. At the top of the LEFT column, write PATTERNS. On the top of the RIGHT column,
Write SLE 4

3. Look at the words on spelling list # 7 on quizlet. If you think the word has a
pattern, write that word under PATTERNS. If you think the word belongs under SLE
4, write the word under SLE 4

4. Then, copy and answer this question:

How are the words related to SLE 4?

A few tips:

• Do the SLE words first. That way it will be easier to see the
PATTERNS.

• For PATTERNS, look for:

-the number of syllables in the word


(ex. exhausted has THREE syllables)

-the sounds in the word


(ex.In grudge, there is a hard G at the beginning and
a soft G at the end of the word)
,
- the order of consonants and vowels
(ex. In the word council, two VOWELS make one
SOUND)
- prefixes and suffixes and their meanings
(ex. The prefix pre- means “before”. The suffix -ence is
used for nouns.)
