Each week we cover a new spelling rule. Students are given a pretest of 15 words every Monday. Based on their score on the pretest students are put into 3 groups: Red, Yellow, and Blue. On Friday they are tested on their groups words, and everyone is tested on the 5 high frequency words at the bottom of their spelling page. ***Do not forget to study the high frequency words!***
Spelling Practice Choices (SPC's):
Students practice their spelling by completing various word work activities with their spelling words to reinforce the spelling rule for that week. All SPC's are to be completed in class. They are started on Tuesdays and are turned in on Thursdays.
Spelling Activities for Homework:
Students can choose whichever spelling activity they would like to do. Spelling activities are done Monday - Thursday nights for homework. Students need to select a different activity each night. Please have your student put the date on their homework. These are due on Fridays.
