  1. I figured "top rop" was jump rope but I would never have guessed the others. Is this a typical level of spelling skills for a first grader?

  2. It helps that there were only six choices, so I used process of elimination to figure out what they were saying. I would say this is below average for a first grader. But there's not quite the emphasis on spelling now that there was when we were in school. To which I say, "thank goodness." They need to have everything spelled right for their final drafts, but the rest of the time it's all about producing content. No spelling tests either. Spelling tests were the bane of my elementary school existence. And the kids still end up spelling things correctly.
