Spelling Grading Procedure:
A word will be counted wrong if 1 letter is incorrect. Corrections will be indicated on the test and would need to be returned corrected for a 70.
Points will not be deducted from spelling grade for incorrect handwriting. For example: A capital letter written in middle of word the rAn, the point would not be deducted off the "a" from spelling grade. However, those points will be deducted from handwriting grade which will be indicated as an E = Excellent, S- Satisfactory, N= Needs improvement.
Please continue to work with your student on writing letters correctly and legibly so that the words can be graded appropriatly. For example: If an n looks like and h it will be counted incorrect.
Baggie Books are due every Friday. 1 stories a night should read by the student with the help of a responsible adult. The readling log should be filled out appropriatly with the date, story title, indicate if it was easy, ok or hard for your student to read and then signed.

Please sign stating that you have received your child's graded work on the sheet attached in the folder. If correcetd work (daily work only) is needed, please help your child correct their work and return (place in front pocket of folder) by the next Tuesday.
