Sacred Heart utilizes
the research based Sitton Spelling program.
The Sitton Spelling philosophy is that words
aren't really "mastered" until they are spelled correctly in
everyday writing. Many students can memorize words for a Friday
test but there is no transfer to student writing.
Fourth graders are responsible to learn
336-500 from the list of 1200 words. Words are arranged on the list
in the order of frequency of use in everyday writing. In addition,
words on the No
Excuses (Priority Word List) are
words that should have 100% mastery for fourth graders.
