Tough Words for Grade 5
Tough Words for Grade 5 is a 1-page word list that is a useful quick reference list for troublesome words with -gh- spelling. The pronunciation of these words changes slightly. This list includes only words that a Grade 5 child should know.
Words such as tough and through are listed as well as some more unusual words.
I suggest that you go through the list with your student and give ten words each week. The unusual words can be left out as they are included only to acquaint the student with them.
The text in this lesson pack puts -ough words into context and reinforces word learning.
