This year I am incorporating a new spelling program called Words Their Way. Students will be assessed and grouped according to their needs. Therefore there will be different spelling lists for different groups. Their new lists are called sorts and will be kept in an envelope at school.
We will also use a traditional spelling list and test format based on our reading anthology. There will be a pretest on Day 1 and a test on Day 5. Those who get a 100% on the pretest are Spelling Aces and don't have to do the homework or take the test. If you want extra practice you can also go to Spelling City and find every lesson's words from our reading anthology listed. You can do activities with the words or take practice tests.
