Memory Words and Pattern Words are introduced at the beginning of each unit.  At the end of a unit, students take a spelling test on ten words- all of the Memory Words and selected Pattern Words.  If a spelling list has contractions and/or trickers, children are tested on ten of those words instead of Pattern Words and Memory Words.
