Grade 6: We Learn Better Together (Structure Word Inquiry)

Mrs. Reichstein came to teach our class about structured word inquiry. Students had the opportunity to become investigators and detectives regarding the how and why words are spelled a particular way.

She explained that, “English spelling is a highly ordered, logical system, with explainable rules and patterns”.

We learned about the following terms:

Morphology-sequencing and structure of meaning

Etymology-interrelation of of meaning between words (where the words come from…origin)

Phonology-units of speech (sound) that make meaning

We are looking forward to learning more about these rules and patterns.
