Our spelling tests consist of 5 words. Two words are our "Red words" also called sight words. A red word means they must stop and think, it cannot be sounded out. Three of our words are CVC words that can be sounded out also known as "Green words". A Green words means go ahead and sound it out. This assessment is used to help me gauge students understanding of sounding out simple CVC words (constant, vowel, constant) and their ability to recall sight words that cannot be sounded out. Modifications will be made for students if necessary.
