This is the last week that all students will have the same spelling words. Starting after Thanksgiving break, students will have different lists designed to help them with their individual areas of difficulty in spelling. You will be able to locate your child’s word lists by logging in to his or her spellingcity.com account and going to Lists and Games.
Students will still all have the same vocabulary lists, but they will not be the same as their spelling lists anymore.
The test for these words will be on Thursday, November 17.
