Weekly spelling lists will be assigned throughout the school year.  Spelling homework will typically be given Monday through Thursday.  Daily spelling assignments should be carefully completed in the front section of the homework notebook.  Spelling tests are usually given on Fridays.  Spelling skills may be further developed through regular writing, lots of reading, awareness of common spelling patterns, word work, and by playing spelling games.
