**Spelling test on Monday Nov. 20th
Look under tab 4 in your child’s binder! A pretest is given to see if your child will be given the regular list or the challenge list. If you see a challenge list just practice that one with your child and the extra practice words at the bottom of the regular list. If your child gets the challenge list I put an automatic 100% in my grade book for the pretest. This adds some cushion to their spelling test score on Friday since they are getting harder words. Any questions please ask!
We are now focusing on
the Unit 2 list in class.
