Our 1st weekly spelling quiz is this Friday.

To prepare for that, students have been asked tonight to study the “Bridge to Terabithia” words they have been working on since late last week.  There will be a “mock” quiz tomorrow to help them narrow down the number of words they need to concentrate on studying.

We discussed today how they might study their words.  The suggestion was to:

  1. Select five words.  Spell each word out loud, five times each.
  2. Silently write the same words down, five time each.
  3. Write the words down again, five times each.  This time, as you are writing them, spell them aloud.
  4. Test how well you know the words – maybe a parent or older sibling could help with this 🙂
  5. Repeat steps 1 to 4, adding 5 new words + the words not learned from the last round!

Note: This time, word meanings will not be tested, only the spelling of words.
