We will have a spelling test every week. Each test contains twelve words that comes from the Saxon phonics program. Your child should be able to sound out these words. The last two words will be sight words. They will not be able to sound these words out. They will need to memorize them. There are also spelling sentences. Your child will be expected to write these sentences correctly using a capital letter and punctuation. Spelling tests will be on Friday of each week and the list will go home on Mondays. Please do not wait until Thursday night to study for the test. The words may seem easy at first but will get harder each week. If you study a few words each night Thursday can be used as a review. A fun way to study spelling words is with www.spellingcity.com. To get to my page go to www.spellingcity.com/srmeenach. There will be spelling homework throughout the week.
