Place in envelope to return.
o 4-square sentences with spelling words. Same as above but two spelling words in each sentence for a total of four sentences. Place in envelope to return.
o Spelling test: if they want to write the words in cursive after they take the test printing the words, they certainly may. If they balk, maybe they can write the odd numbered ones, or every third word. (The children are accustomed to my grading our tests immediately and are always eager to know what they made. I’ve sent you grading scales in case you want to do this. You certainly don’t have to. Challenge words don’t count in the spelling grade.) Place in envelope to return.
o No Open Court reading test. Make sure student is taking AR tests. These will play a major role in grade assignments.

The children are accustomed to my grading our facts or tests immediately and are always eager to know what they made. I’ve sent you grading scales in case you want to do this.
