We will have weekly spelling tests.
Be sure to open the correct file for the correct week.
Spelling tests are usually on Thursdays.
The spelling list is usually handed out to students on Thursdays in order for students to study over the weekend. Students are expected to know how to spell each word.
For the time being, students will not be tested on the parts of speech of the spelling words on the test.
Students are expected to write each word in a sentence. These sentences are due on Friday. Extra points will be given for each higher level sophisticated vocabulary word that is used in a sentence up to 20 extra points.
Words that are misspelled will be written 20 times each. Sentences that are missing words, don't have proper capitalization and lower case letters, or don't have proper punctuation and grammar will be rewritten five times each.
The spelling words are progressively getting more difficult each week. I advice that each student study at least ten minutes each night.
