Any tricks to get students to practice their spelling words? In my district, we are not allowed to choose our words or even make them more developmentally appropriate. We must give the list that comes with the Treasures series. Many of my students do well on spelling tests (Bs and As), but many more fail the same tests. I'm wondering what I should include to help encourage students to practice these words as they are given every test question a week or more before the test.
