Maybe we could get our spellers together. During a conference for our 3rd grade dd her teacher showed us the spelling evaluation tool they use. They give the kids 75 words to spell which are chosen to show proficiency. The number right is supposed to translate into grade level. So 30 wrong would be a score of 45 hence 4th grade 5th month. DD got all 75 right. Teacher said, good for her, the rest of the world has spell check :-)
