    I monitor words kids are spelling incorrectly in their writing, use fourth grade high frequency words, and 4th grade spelling lists to make up individualized tests for the kids. Some children end up with the same lists. I then give them a contract to complete so they practice using the words and I never give more than 20 words, some kids only have 10 each week. I also use the same words on more than one test so they don't just memorize for the test. It is a lot to get started, but once you get a system down, it works out well. I have had parent volunteers come in and give the tests with me. I know some teachers allow the kids to give the tests to each other.
    Here is a site my friend used to help her:http://www.resources4teachers.org/spelling.html
