Spanish is a very phonetic language, however there are certain tricky sounds, letters and spelling patterns that require attention.   We teach the spelling pattern for the week at school and give only five words for students to memorize at home. At school, students will receive the list of spelling for the month and keep it in a safe place to refer to during the month.

Spelling Tests will take place on Fridays, beginning in October. As a part of their Spanish spelling, students will write each of their spelling words from that week, then they will be asked to write a complete sentence using the words in context.  The test will be scored and sent home.
