Spell This!

Caitlin is in 1st grade this year and has learned many new things in school. Not least of which has been working on her handwriting and spelling and continuing work on reading.

Just this week, they started spelling tests and gave out a pre-test. They sent the list home with the child and your child is supposed to practice spelling over the weekend to prepare for the week ahead.

Here is Caitlin's list (I don't know what every one else's looked like):
  • Important
  • Accidentally
  • Around
  • Situation
  • Thought
She got two of them wrong: Imporntant and Thoght.

Here's the note from the teacher in her folder:
"Caitlin will need challenge spelling words (Great speller)."

Updated to add: the words they spelled would have been on the 1st 100 sight word list, like this one.
