    Exclamation help needed

    I have been hired to tutor two kids in english. I want to give them a spelling test each week. Can you please suggest two suitable spelling lists for the kids? They are aged 9 and 11 but i want to be stricter with them so can you please provide slighty more difficult words ? Thanks.

    Hi Rainhue. It is hard to suggest a spelling test based purely on age. What matters is their ability level rather than their age.

    I am in Singapore, and teach regularly. If you want some advice about materials/sources feel free to PM me.

    I know you are from Singapore, that is why I mentioned it!

    P3 should be able to handle most 'everyday' words, meaning you can have a conversation without them asking for meanings.

    P5 should be able to understand roots, prefixes and suffixes, meaning that they understand 'auto-' or 'anti-' for instance.

    I didn't know that being new stopped PM, but I will PM you so you can reply, and maybe offer more specific advice.
