    Spelling Test

    I am going to try begining my spelling cycle on Wednesday and testing the following Tuesday. I think this way the students have time to work on the words through the weekend, I can remind them of the test on Monday and take the test on Tuesday. We have to send Friday Folders home every week and this will give me time to grade the tests and not worry about having to have them done in 30 minutes. Another teacher has used this schedule for several years and he says he and the parents really enjoy it.
    Chapter 14 in the book Word Matters explains how to implement students picking their own words and a schedule for each day for students to spend about 15 minutes on studying their words. I used it last year and my 6th graders really had fun with it.
