Students have 17 spelling words each week.  

  • 12 are words which help teach a phonics skill and, 
  • 5 are high frequency - sight words.  We take a pre-test on Mondays and a regular test on Fridays.  
  • There are 5 challenge words - Students must demonstrate understanding of word definitions and usage.  
  • Students who spell all 17 words correctly and successfully complete the challenge receive a grade of '4'.


Those who get all of the words right on the test receive a grade of 3 or better do not have to practice their words in class during the week.  They are allowed to play spelling games instead.
