Each week your child will be expected to complete self-selected activities from a spelling contract. These will be given out on Monday, and they will be due on Friday. Each Thursday I will give a pretest; if the student makes a 100, that score will be recorded for the week's test grade. If any words are missed on the pretest, I will give that practice paper back to review for Friday's test.
Remember to use www.spellingcity.com each week for practice!
Also, your child will be responsible for a grammar test each week. We refer to it as the DLR (Daily Language Review) practice. We do a section each day in class; I review all the answers and allow students to correct their practices. Then sentences are chosen from the week for students to correct. This will be taken as a grade.
Vocabulary words are also tested on a weekly basis. You can find the words and definitions on the current week at a glance on my home page.
