All students will take a spelling test in order to determine their level of spelling development and understanding. Each child will have an individual spelling list. The number of words on each list will depend on your child’s ability. I will select words from your child’s writing. These words will be sent home once every 2 weeks for you to practice with your child nightly. Your child will be expected to spell that word correctly in their writing from that point on. The child needs to show mastery of those words in their writing and will be held accountable for those words. New words will be given as the child shows that he/she can spell the previous spelling words.
