Six Trait Writing

Spelling City Practice your spelling words at home and test yourself!

Teacher note regarding spelling: We will use a differentiated spelling system. The teacher will devise lists in advance, and students will take a pre-test on Fridays over those words. From there they will replace some words that they spelled correctly with those that they missed the previous week. The post-test will be in class on Thursday. Since students each have a personalized list, they MUST have a copy in class on test day. Two copies will be provided – one for school and one for home. Though we will be working on spelling some during the school day, please help your student by practicing with them on a regular basis at home!
