Spelling Words and Spelling Tests!! (Please read!!)

  • Each week, I will add new spelling words on this newsletter for you to work at home with your child. Like I said on Curriculum Night, your child will bring home a Spelling Journal next Monday.
  • They will be given a list of spelling words each week that they are ENCOURAGED (not required) to practice these words at home 3 times a week. The words will be listed in the newsletter, also your child will copy down the spelling list to bring home in their Guided Reading Folder every Monday.
  • A spelling menu is inside the cover of the journal for students to choose fun ways to practice!
  • Every Friday there will be a spelling test over the words that were sent home. These tests are graded, just a check in to see if students are meeting the spelling standards and if they are ready to move on to the next spelling pattern.
  • If you should have any questions, please let me know!
