It needs to be both!

Clip to ScrapBook #3

You teach spelling patterns, and choose words they need to know with that pattern, including content vocabulary. Students still need to practice spelling patterns in 5th grade, including Greek and Latin roots. That will help them with reading, as well as spelling and vocabulary. It shouldn't be an "either/or" question. Combine both disciplines.
