    Hi all,
    I am looking for some alternative ways to administer spelling tests besides the usual end of week test. I use Words Their Way and teach spelling patterns and I want to figure out how I can see if they have mastered the pattern. Any suggestions? I teach 2nd grade.
    thanks!

    Have the students write you something using as many words following the pattern as they can. You are going to see if their spelling is improving through their writing.
