Spelling is an important piece to overall literacy skills.  It increases familiarity with phonics rules as they apply to reading and writing.  Having a strong spelling base also influences the speed and fluency of writing, allowing for more creativity in overall word choice. 

While students are provided classroom practice in a variety of ways, it is recommended that they practice at home for 5-10 minutes per night.  It is often helpful to study half of the words at a time for 5-10 minutes. Wednesday night homework is for the students to take a pre-test at home.
