We will have weekly spelling tests.
To find the list of words to study, please refer to the appropriate grade level and Reading Street Unit drop down boxes
(under this spelling column).
Be sure to open the correct file for the correct week in the correct Reading Street Unit file.
Spelling tests are usually on Thursdays.
The study guide is usually handed out to students on Fridays in order for students to study over the weekend.
The spelling words will progressively get more difficult each week. I advice that each student study at least ten minutes each night.
