New spelling words will be introduced every week. A pre-test will be given on Monday, and a weekly assessment will be given each Friday.

Throughout the week, students are expected to study and practice spelling words and concepts through classwork and homework.

Homework assignments for each week are listed below. Dates not listed indicate that homework is not assigned for that week. Completed spelling packets (day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4) are due on Fridays.
