March 18, 2017 (5 year old speller*)

Thank you for the wonderful meeting today! Congratulations to * on spelling successes!

I have written up an evaluation of *s spelling and vocabulary skills. I have attached 20 words that I think are good to learn for both spelling and vocabulary. Please let me know what you think of the words and the number of words. Also, I have attached the word list I used during the meeting.

Spelling:

* is really focused when * spells. * is great at clarifying the word to make sure that * knows what word * is being asked. * should continue * way of spelling and asking questions.

Based on the words I asked *, * can easily spell any words up to the sixth grade level. * can spell most of the seventh and eighth grade level words I asked *.

To best prepare * for the spelling rounds, I would study the lists provided by the Bee. I will send other word lists that I think are good for * to study.

Vocabulary:

The way I asked vocabulary is definitely harder than how the Bee assesses it. The Bee vocabulary will be a multiple choice format.

Based on the words I asked *, * can easily define words up to fourth grade level.

To best prepare * for the vocabulary questions, I advise * to continue to read. I will send vocabulary lists that I think are good for * to study.

If * wants to use an online study tool for vocabulary, * can use Quizlet. I can set up a class that * can join. I will put in study sets of vocabulary words that I think are good for the Bee. If you are interested in Quizlet, please let me know. You can learn more about Quizlet at quizlet.com. It is free.

Thanks and have fun spelling! I'm looking forward to next week's meeting.

Bernadette
