Fifth Grade Spelling Words

Why is it important to learn to spell?

Spelling helps cement reading. By learning to spell students make the connection between sounds and letters - the skills kids require in developing literacy. From an early age, learning to identify letters and phonics, and later develop a knowledge of what words mean are critical to reading comprehension and writing cohesively.
