I give a spelling test almost weekly in class. It covers the spelling words from the reading series, sight words, a skill we have been working on and sentence writing. I create my own tests following what we have been doing in class. I have the kids write their spelling words, then they have to find the sight word I say out of a group of 3 and then do whatever the skill part is (this week was writing a word that was the opposite and also writing the digraph that began the picture). Then they have to write a sentence using the word I gave them. I feel this is good practice, but others disagree. I'm curious as to what others think. Do you give spelling tests? What is on them? What do they look like? If you don't give them, why? I'd like to see what others in Bloggyville think about spelling. Let me know your thoughts, please!
