We start each week with a spelling pretest. Then students TAKE HOME their spelling packets. I have them take their packets home so parents can practice their list with them, and so that they have a chance to complete their packets as I do give any other class time for their packets. Students are to bring their packets back to school by Friday completed in order to receive points. Final tests will be given on Fridays.
Here is a great website that I will update weekly that students can use to study their weekly spelling lists.
Just type Holly Paulson in the blank and make sure you search by Teacher's Name. Click Search and then find the spelling lesson number you are looking for. Have fun playing games while you practice your spelling words!
