    • 20 words a week

    • Weekly words based on spelling patterns

    • Words are different each week

    • No emphasis on spelling correctly in writing

  • Sitton Spelling

    • Number varies each week

    • Words based on targeted skills lessons and pulled from grade level priority and core words

    • Words are cycled…they keep popping up.

    • Focused emphasis on proofreading skills and improving spelling in content areas (reading, writing, science, etc.)

All Sitton and Challenge Spelling words can be practiced at www.spellingcity.com. You can also review your child’s test scores there by clicking on “Records” at the top of the page or App.

  • Use tools strategically

  • Attend to precision.

  • Look for structure.

  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

For example understand the place value
For example…Understand the Place Value

Mike’s teacher asked him to write 987.654 in expanded notation. Mike wrote 900 + 80 + 7 + .6 + .50 + .400

What is Mike’s misconception? How would you explain expanded notation to help Mike understand expanded notation?

Proficient in Performance

1) Student explains that Mike doesn’t understand place value for the digits behind the decimal.

2) Student generates an explanation of Mike’s misconception and clearly explains how they would help Mike fix his misconception.
