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 WEEK OF SEPT. 28th:
(Every sixth week of the spelling curriculum is a review week. There are 30 words in our list this week, all taken from the previous five lessons. The test will be on Friday, October 2nd.)

ground boys flat like sweet dishes

desk nights play sick wishes sing
different brave jump book brother land
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
