Spelling Practice & Study Tips
Spelling Routine-Our spelling cycle will run from Monday to Friday.
We will begin our spelling homework routine this week. Our routine will usually run from Monday through Friday. To begin, a pre-test will be given. Based on that performance, your child will be assigned the appropriate spelling list—On-Level or Beyond Level. We will do various practice activities in class throughout the week. I ask that students practice their words at home by completing a few basic assignments. Every week’s list will have 20 new words to practice and study.
Assignment 1: Word Sort-Monday
Students will sort (organize) the words into groups based on a given spelling pattern. This sheet is on the back of this menu.
Assignment 2: Copy-Cover-Check-Tuesday
Students will copy the spelling words, then cover them and try to spell each from memory. They will check their work—If correct, they mark a ✓. If incorrect, they write it correctly.
Assignment 3: Practice Test -Wednesday
Students will ask someone to quiz them. The students should check their own practice tests. Missed words should be practiced by writing them 3 times each.
Assignment 4: Study for the test-Thursday
I recommend doing 1 assignment each night so that the practice and review is gradual.
