For spelling assessments, I am only looking for correct application of the sounds/word patterns focused on in each unit - not always looking for correct spelling of the entire word.
Every now and then, I come across interesting, insightful, helpful, and funny articles that help me understand 6 year olds a little better, or give me a new perspective on teaching...instead of flooding your emails with links and silly memes, I'll share them here...if you come across anything good, email me the links and I'm happy to post them here as well!
