Ilyas Helfy, a 4th grader at Dorothy Dodds Elementary, has daily questions about why words are spelled the way they are. He says, “I just want to understand” and “You’ll have to tell me why.” Yuki Rajapakse, also in 4th grade, is doing the same, but with meaning and vocabulary. These students push Ms. Hammero’s 4th grade class to dig in and understand why, for example, the ‘p’ is silent in the word “receipt” and what the word “basis” means. We then research languages of origin, etymology and use new vocabulary in sentences to support understanding and application. Keep reaching higher as readers, writers, and thinkers, Yuki and Ilyas! #askquestions #DoddsSpuds
