Spelling pretests are given on the first day of a 5-day weekly reading cycle. Students are given the list of words to check their pretests.  This allows students to see which words they need to spend the most time studying.  Post test will be given on day 5.  You can practice studying on my Quia website.  The complete list of spelling words for the year follows.
