Essential Spelling Words

At the beginning of each term, Room 8 does a spelling test (that also comes home in the learning log) to see which spelling list each student is working on.

From here, each spelling group has 5 words to practice each week that they are tested on each Friday. The children know that it is their responsibility to make sure they learn these words. They are rewarded with 5 minutes of playground time if they get all their words correct on the Friday. I have been really impressed to see that, especially towards the end of the term, most of the class has been practicing and getting 5/5 each week!

However, at school they also have access to all of the spelling lists so they can extend themselves and learn other words too if they would like. Here is a link to the spelling words essential spelling words so that they can do the same at home.
