Every 40 days in the Sequential Spelling. program you can give your child a test to see how they are retaining information. We just passed the forty day mark and my kid completed the test.
She correctly spelled 70% of the words. While 70% isn’t bad, it isn’t good either. So what now? I plan on giving her the 80th day test next and then completing the next forty days. At that point I will give her the 80th day test again to determine his gains.
I wish I had done a pretest for the fortieth day test now. A 70% would be interpreted much differently with a pretest that was only 20% correct over one that was 60% correct. I’ll reevaluate in another forty days to determine if Sequential Spelling is the best way for my child to learn to spell.
