Memorized spelling tests tend to not improve a child's spelling. Want steer away from weekly spelling tests of "number one... play"? Here is a spelling test that will require students to apply their spelling lists in a more realistic way. This is the 1st unit of 6 units. It includes 6 weeks of spelling practice and tests. These spelling lists are complimentary to the Reading Wonders Grade 2 weekly spelling.
The New Look
The weekly test has students writing a sentence and finding misspelled words in a passage. The sentences have some of the weeks spelling words and are read aloud by the teacher. Then the passage part is where they read through a passage and must find and circle the misspelled words. Once they have found all 5 of the misspelled words they then need to write them correctly on the lines.
Practice Pages Included
Each week also includes 3 practice pages with the 10 spelling words. These practice pages can be used to differentiate throughout classwork or be sent home as homework.
I hope it helps you as much as it helped me in my classroom.
