Spelling skills are important to master at any grade level. This spelling packet teaches students to not just memorize a list of words, but to understand and memorize the spelling rule that the words on the list follow. Memorizing a list of words is great, but understanding and memorizing the spelling rules will help students develop skills that will make them better spellers in the long run.

1. Silent e + suffix
2. Words ending in y + suffix

4. i before e

**Exceptions to these rules are also covered and practiced, however, keep in mind that there are plenty more exceptions out there!
