This week begins adding two sentences at the end of the spelling test. The students will have to create their own sentences to write. Each sentence will need to have one spelling word from the week, at least 5 words, no misspelled words, and correct punctuation.

The sentences will count as all or nothing. To prepare, it is a good idea to help your child create two sentences at the beginning of the week and practice those two every day until the test. J
