Fundations: How we learn to spell in second grade

Posted by Chrissy Hultgren on 11/12/2021


Fundations® is a multisensory and systematic phonics, spelling, and handwriting program that we use in our classroom on a daily basis. If you've ever watched your child tap out a word or refer to specific key words when thinking about how to spell a word, you will know that this comes from Fundations. Every day we practice spelling and reading specific sounds and letter patterns. Your children are learning how to form letters correctly and with appropriate spacing. I've received lots of great feedback around handwriting this year! One of the components of the daily Fundations work is called "Drill sounds/Warm up." Pictured above is a student modeling for the class how to spell and mark up words in order to demonstrate letter patterns.
