Each week the 5th grade spelling list will have 6 words that follow the named spelling pattern. The remaining words will include content words from science, social studies and math for a total of 15 words. In addition, there will be 5 bonus words that follow the taught vowel or spelling pattern. These final 5 words will not be revealed to students until the test. The purpose of this is to test whether the students have learned the spelling pattern and can transfer the knowledge to unknown words.
