Speller’s Choice Grading System

Students need to accumulate four points each week by

doing their Speller’s Choice homework at home. They can turn

in their work throughout the week at any time. All of their

Spelling homework needs to be turned in by Friday. I will take

off ten points per spelling point that is not turned in by Friday.

If a student turns in 4 points by Friday=100%

If a student turns in 3 points by Friday=90%

If a student turns in 2 points by Friday=80%

If a student turns in 1 point by Friday=70%

If a student turns in 0 points by Friday=60%

Students are required to make up all missed points on

their Speller’s Choice homework. If the full four points are not

turned in by the following Monday, students will have to do

their late Speller’s Choice at recess until they reach the

designated four points. Students’ grades are final and will not

be changed after they get their four points. No further points

will be deducted from their spelling grade. Any extra points

beyond the four points required will be extra credit points. So

if a student attains 6 points in a week, the final grade will be

102%.

If a student is absent on Friday, the Speller’s Choice

homework may be turned in on Monday with no penalty.
