SPELLING
Testing Earlier Can Be Motivating

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: August 23, 2001

In my class, students and parents know that students will take the weekly spelling test on Thursdays (not a traditional Friday.) If students score perfectly on Thursday, then they do not have to take it again on Friday. I re-give the test on Friday, thus motivating a majority of my students to take a 2nd chance of earning a better score than the day before. My kids really like taking the challenge and I've seen their test scores improve dramatically!
