In English this year, there are several different spelling groups: Lodgepole Pine, Western Larch, and Ponderosa Pine.  Students are put into groups according to their individual spelling needs.  If you feel like your child’s spelling list is not appropriate for them, please contact Liz ([email protected]) and we will discuss adjusting their list.  Groupings will be adjusted continuously throughout the year.  In addition to the words listed here on the blog, students also receive a hard copy of their spelling list every Wednesday in their homework folders.

Each Wednesday, attached to their spelling list, your student will receive ways in which to practice their words.   This written practice work is due on the following Wednesday, unless otherwise specified.

List 14 Homework is due Wednesday, 1/29/20 and the test will be Wednesday as well.
