Spelling = Torture

It's Tuesday, time to practice some CRAZY tough spelling words for the week. Here, the Kiddo is fighting back the tears... you'd think I was pulling this kid's fingernails out!
These words come from the history lesson and play they are working on in class. Words like Louisiana Purchase, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sacajawea. WOW!! Heck I had to spell check these words just writing them here!
While not ALL the words are as unique as listed above, there are a enough oddballs that using won't work this week.
So, we got out the bananagrams letters and made our OWN test. It worked pretty well and he really did a GREAT job! I was proud of him and praised him highly as he worked through these words.
