5th Grade "No Excuse" Words

"No Excuse" words are the words that students are accountable to spell correctly in all of their everyday writing and are taken from the list of core words. Below are the words that children in 5th grade should already have mastered by the beginning of this grade. Each week's 5 new core words are added to the list and can be found on the spelling words page. Please help your child to spell these words correctly in their everyday writing. Spelling is both a developmental and highly individualized skill so teachers attempt to meet the needs of their classes by using the individualized spelling lists each week that will include words listed below along with their grade's core and challenge words
