Unit 2 spelling words are here. This is the list of spelling words for Oct. 5- November 20.
Here is a description of how I grade the weekly spelling/writing tests.
In 4th grade we will be preparing students to take an FSA writing test in April. This test is called an RWA (Reading Writing Assessment). It is text based writing, meaning they will read a passage set of texts and then answer a given prompt by using some information from the passage set and some of their own words. It is very much styled like a research paper. The state has been giving this type of test since 2012.
Here is a copy of the Informative Essay Rubric that the state (and I) will use to grade your student's written essay!
