            Weekly Spelling Routine

     Marking periods 2, 3, and 4...       

    You can expect your child to receive the following spelling homework each week:

     

    Monday:            Write missed words 3X each and complete assigned  worksheet.

     

    Tuesday:           Choose one spelling “choice” activity.

     

    Wednesday:      Choose one spelling “choice” activity (must be a             different activity from the one chosen on Tuesday).

     

    Thursday:         Study your spelling words.    

    On Monday, we will be giving a pre-test of all regular spelling words.  These will be corrected in class.  Spelling papers will be given out on Monday and should be returned daily in the homework folder. Please do your best to keep the papers stapled into a packet.

            On Friday, your child will be given a spelling test and a spelling dictation test.  On the dictation test, your child will be asked to write 4 sentences (including spelling words and sight words) that the teacher reads aloud.   These will be simple sentences such as:  Did you see her new ring?  The sentences will be graded for correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.

     

    For those children who would like to participate, we will also be sending home a list of challenge spelling words.  These words follow the spelling pattern of the week and will be tested on Fridays after the regular tests.

     

    During weeks with fewer than five days, the homework will be altered to fit the weekly schedule.  Happy Spelling!
