2nd Grade Team
Thank you for entrusting your child to us this school year. We will do our best every day to be your child’s guide in learning and exploring.
On the first school day of each week students will take a spelling pretest. The list words correlate to the phonics and spelling lessons taught throughout the week. If students demonstrate mastery of the words on their pretest by missing two or fewer they will be given a more challenging list. Students will practice the words and word patterns at school, but they should also practice at home. The posttest occurs on the last school day of the week.
The goal is not to select difficult words that students study for the weekly test and soon forget. The words and word patterns spelled correctly, as well as the students’ spelling errors, open a window to understanding students’ strengths and weaknesses in phonics.
