Spelling

A new list of words will posted here at the start of each week.  Later in the year, most Grade 2 students will be tested on the list.  The tests are on Fridays.  While these tests do not comprise a significant portion of final grades, I encourage the class to take them seriously.  Preparing for and taking the weekly tests, gives students a chance to become confident in a test taking setting.
