You are so right about this. I searched my house to find a sample to use as an illustration. Unfortunately, I did not find the long, skinny sheet of paper (with a seasonal sticker on top). This authentic, grade three spelling test was the best I could do! I always enjoy your insight. Thank you for reframing “spelling” to “word work” and encouraging us to think differently about this.
