Spelling Instructions

Weekly Spelling Homework

Each week, please choose three boxes from the grid to complete. You must do box #1 (sentences) each week, but the other two choices are entirely up to you! Please write the number of the box that you choose at the top of each assignment. If the box has a star (*), have a grown-up sign the page in your spelling notebook. Make sure you use your best handwriting and check that all of your spelling words are spelled correctly!

Spelling homework will be assigned on Monday and notebooks will be collected on Thursday. You are expected to do an assignment Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, but as long as you have three boxes turned in on Thursday, we don’t mind if you make your own schedule. We will check your homework Thursday and then give the notebook back so that you can study your words with an adult for the test each Friday.
