On Mondays students will take a pretest. Students will then correct their own work and scores will be collected. They will print their words in their agenda and highlight the words they missed on the pretest. These are the words they should study at home and during specified times at school. Students will take the post test on Fridays. The spelling post test will be returned to students on either Friday or Monday. All students have the same spelling words. Spelling Words consist of content words - words they will see and continually use throughout the school year.

The expectation is for students to improve their pretest score by at least five points. If students continually are not meeting expectations, the student and the teacher will sit down and set goals, so the student can achieve expectations.
