There are two assessments of the High Frequency Rainbow Words.
Your child needs to be able to read aloud each word within 3 seconds.
Your child must also be able to write each word using correct letter form and spelling
I also give students a challenge dictation sentence. Students must spell all words correctly within the sentence and use proper capitalization and punctuation. If correct, students earn a bonus point. If incorrect, students' scores are not adversely effected.
