Grade 6 @ Room 365

Below are the Word Up Lists that complement each lesson from our text.

Students write a “cold” pretest at the beginning of the cycle and use mistakes from the pretest combined with a personal selection of additional words from the Word Up lists to make personal lists of 15 words for end of cycle dictations.  We usually complete 4-6 per term.
