(*) Indicates 1st grade "no excuse words" (high frequency words) - they are on our word wall in the classroom!
We will take a pre-test on Thursday each week. Students that make a 100% on Thursday do not have to test again on Friday. Friday will be test day. After the first semester, we will begin spelling sentences. We will test spelling words on Thursdays and sentences on Fridays. There will not be a practice test for either, but we will practice our words and sentences throughout the week!
