All students will take a PRETEST on FRIDAYS using the basic spelling words for the week. If a student gets three or more wrong on the pretest, they will keep the basic list and practice those words for their FINAL test. If your child gets two or less wrong on the pretest with the basic words, they will be given a “challenge list” that will will need to practice for their final tests. All FINAL tests will be given on the following THURSDAYS.
We will take time during the week to practice these words at school, but it will be very important that your child is also getting time to practice at home. Spelling will not only help your child become a better reader but will also help them become more confident writers.
Thank you for your support!
