The students' spelling list for the week is based on their pretest.  It is possible that students could have the challenge list one week and regular list another depending on how they do with the pretest.  In addition to the 20 words students will also choose 5 words from their high frequency word list to work on.  High frequency words are words that come up most often in student writing.  These are words that students are expected to spell correctly in their day to day writing.
