It would be amazing to have a Spelling Assessment at the beginning similar to the Words Their Way Curriculum. In Words Their Way, every student is given 25 words and the sentence to spell. I then can pinpoint what level the student understands in spelling - beginning/ending consonants, short vowels, digraphs, blends, long vowels, other vowels etc.
Wouldn't it be awesome to have every student start specifically on the spelling list of the patterns they aren't understanding instead of going through several spelling lists that I can tell they already know?
