We use the Wonders spelling program as well as The Spelling City website in 5th grade. A new spelling lesson will be started each Monday. Your child is to complete the pages for that lesson independently for homework. The pages will be due on Thursday. A written test of the spelling words will be taken in school each Friday. Additionally, all fifth graders are expected to spell accurately in their everyday writing. The use of good spelling within all written work is an important part of the spelling grade.
In addition to the spelling unit and tests, all students will have to choose 10 spelling words and write each of the 10 in a sentence for each unit.
Please do not wait until the night before to study your words. Study 5 words each night and you’ll do great!
