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 MARCH 1st:
(Some words have more letters than you might think. To spell these words, say them carefully and picture how they look. The test will be on Friday, March 5th.)
