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.

thanks but im still a new member so i cant PM you. then kids im teaching are in P3 and P5. To be truthful, i had a hard time converting those numbers to age. im also from Singapore, diff is , im born here
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.
