Spelling:
  • Next Spelling Test 25 on Monday, June 18
  • This term, students will create their own spelling lists using words from their silent reading books
  • Some students have opted to select words from their dictionaries also
  • The spelling test will typicall contain ten words.  The last two words are their weekly vocabulary words.
  • Students' spelling lists may be found in their Google Drive. Sign-in is required.
  • Because students are exploring new vocabulary and spelling strategies, the emphasis this term is not to receive a perfect spelling score, but to encourage them to take risks and take on new challenges
  • Students' planners may contain emoticons, which resemble the following :
  • 6112018_40246_0.png
  • Their planners will contain two scores :
  • One score will be out ten to demonstrate accuracy, or how many words spelled correctly
  • A second score will be out of four, represented either with numbers or with emoticons (see above), which demonstrate level of difficulty
  • Again, the emphasis is not on getting a perfect score, but to encourage students to take risks with learning and to take on challenges
  • Archive : Students can still practice, study, and play games at the following site:

Scoring :
  • Scoring :
  • Some written responses will be marked out of three
  • Three points does not mean three sentences
  • Three points mean that your answer is very thoughtful and interesting
  • Here are samples:
  • Question: Do you think the cow should jump over the moon?
  • One Point : A one word answer (Yes or No); Yes, the cow should jump over the moon; It's a good idea.
  • Two Points : No because it is not safe and he may get hurt falling back down.
  • Three Points : Yes, if the cow has a talent so that he/she can jump really high, then he/she should take a risk to do something no other cow has done before.  Otherwise, it would be a waste of a rare and unique talent.
