Second Graders will have a spelling test on Friday each week. The words are given to the students in the Newletter on Monday. We practice in class and students are expected to practice at home as well. The spelling test is the only paper that receives a letter grade and that's only to give the students a little taste of that type of grading. A bonus word which the children will not know ahead of time is given on each test that, if spelled correctly, can lead to an A+ or can knock out another misspelled word. Grades on the report card are based, not only on the spelling book work and test grades, but on how the students apply what they've learned in spelling to their daily writing tasks.
SPELLING FOR THE FIVE E-LEARNING DAYS:
(During the five days that the children are out of school they should work on and take a test on Lesson 13 in the Spelling book. At school we finish one page each day and take the test on the fifth day. The words of Lesson 13 are considered "tricky" in the amount of letters and sounds used.)

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
