*SPELLING* 

Spelling words will be listed below. Tests will be every Friday (or Thursday if there is no school on Friday). We work with these words every day in our spelling unit, but they should also be studied at home. The bonus word is just for fun, it does not count for or against the grade.  

**Visit www.spellingcity.com/eleboff for practice. Our weekly lists can be found here.  Spelling List # and date of test will appear.   There are many fun activities to play! Please note- Room 1 also uses "eleboff"
