Should we use the 5-day cycle of Buddy Study Spelling for our fourth and fifth graders?

I think it is a good system for learning words in any grade level. You would use the principles in the 4th and 5th grade level Phonics Continuum for the minilessons to create the anchor charts from which students choose words.
Other thoughts?

hi

  • Writing so others can read and understand
  • Recognizing the right choice from the possibilities presented by a spell checker
  • Looking up words in a dictionary
  • Filing alphabetically
  • Playing word games like Scrabble┬«
And even though word processing software includes spell checkers, students still need to become proficient spellers

Yes. Any of the Word Study elements found in the 3rd grade Word Study Minilesson Guide can be applied to 4th and 5th grade. Use the templates to create your own lessons using your grade level's Phonics continuum found in the Literacy Continuum or the new Comprehensive Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study Guide.

I see that grade 5 word study is in development... do you have a date that it is likely to be released?

The production timeline found at http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/id/364 is the best place to check. It shows "In Development" that materials expected for 2020 or later. Sorry but that is all we know for now. In the meantime, you can use the Continuum PWS section or the Comprehensive Guide for your grade level to select goals with the lesson routines and framework in grade 3 then 4 to teach and apply.

Stay tuned!
