Campbellsville Elementary School second-graders are working hard to learn new words.
In Lynne Horn’s class, students recently received a new list of sight words.
Before learning the words, students took a pre-test on them.
Then, students studied the words by spelling and writing them and talking about what they mean, in addition to other activities.
At the end of the week, students took a post-test to see how well they can spell and write their new words.
