Grade 2 Spelling Words

Dear Grade 2 Parent:


1) Attached are the Grade 2 weekly Spelling Word Lists for the school year. Each list is
numbered and the Spelling Week # will appear on the monthly calendar on Friday
each week (or Thursday on a short week).
Please practice the words for the week daily at home to build strong spelling skills and
to help your child grow as a reader and writer.
For the first two months in grade two we review and reinforce the sounds and tricky
words taught in grade one.

2) In November we move to the following format. Each week the


students are given ten spelling words to learn. The list is divided as follows:
1. Bolded Words: these words need to be memorized.
2. Sound of the Week Words: these words feature the sound of the week.

3) Spelling Test
a) The Spelling Word List for the week is sent home on Monday and the test
will be on the Friday (unless noted otherwise on the classroom calendar).
b) The test consists of 8 words and 3 dictated sentences.
c) The first 4 words on the test will be the same 4 bolded words from the
Spelling Word List.
d) The next 4 words will be words that contain the sound of the week but may or may
not be the same words sent home for the sound of the week as we want the children to
transfer their learning of that weeks sound to other words.
e) The 3 dictated sentences will give students practice in listening for sounds in the
words they write and will help them develop their independent writing.
f) Marked tests will be sent home on Monday - please help your child complete the
corrections on the back of the spelling sheet and bring it back to class.
Thank you,
Mrs. Thornton (2A),
Mrs. Breitkreuz (2B),
Mrs. Pelster (2C)
