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 Words for the Week of
(Every 6th lesson is a review lesson. The children will learn to demonstrate the transfer of spelling patterns from the words they learned in Lessons 1-5 to new words. The test will be on Friday, October 1st.)
