Fourth grade students can expect spelling and vocabulary assessments every week and a half to two weeks in fourth grade. In addition to being able to spell their words, they will need to know what the mean to be prepared for their vocabulary assessment. The spelling and vocabulary words will all be based on morphology so students will learn a prefix, suffix, or root word and then how that part of the word can change the meaning of a word. Students aren't required to complete a specific spelling assignment for homework because I know that we all learn differently and study differently. Please find the spelling and vocabulary lists for past and current weeks on this page.
