This 2nd grade spelling test and word list includes words with an R-Controlled A to make the AR sound. The list fits with the Houghton Mifflin list for Officer Buckle and Gloria. I added more challenge words to the list for a total of 16 words. The test challenges students more than the usual test as it includes various types of questions. There is a dictation (I change my sentence every year based on the needs of my group: plural nouns, possessives, commas, etc.) and identification of misspelled words in a sentence and in isolation formatted like state assessments. The test is written by 2nd grade teacher, Lisa Harrison. Please see my other spelling tests and comprehension quizzes.
