Information and links for students in Miss Jelley's Reading Group

Students in Miss Jelley's reading group work in stations, small groups, and with LLI tutors. Instruction in all areas is individualized to aid and challenge students appropriately. 
  •  Word Work: This is where students practice phonics and spelling strategies to improve their reading and writing. Spelling lists and tests are not weekly and specific to your child's needs, meaning that all students are not working on the same lists of words.
  • Read to Self: Here students practice silent reading which is an essential skill that everyone benefits from practicing. Students read chapter books as well as picture books and then write a letter to me weekly to describe their thoughts when reading. 
    • Click here to visit the Columbus Metropolitan Library website where it is FREE and EASY to order books by your child's favorite author or series and have them delivered to the nearest library branch to you. 
  • Work on Writing: Here students go through the writing process to complete a variety of genres of writing. Focus in this station is creativity, word choice, grammar and spelling, as well as dictionary and handwriting skills. 
    • Thesaurus' and dictionaries are great resources that your child should be able to use independently. If you do not have a dictionary at home, you can order one here on Amazon for $3.59 new or even cheaper for used. Although I'd prefer students to practice with a paper dictionary, electronic versions are available at
