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.
(During these weeks of home instruction I'll be putting copies of each new unit of study for each week on the student's desks to be picked up Sunday morning if you're at worship or Monday when you are able. The classroom will be open from 9:00-4:00 each work day and on Sunday mornings. Have your child do the work, a bit each day, and please give them a test on the words on Friday. I'll include a test sheet in the packet starting April 5th.)

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
