I'm getting very upset with my dds teacher. The last five spelling test she will add 3 to 5 spelling words to the test. My dd struggles with spelling so she has to study very hard. She usally still gets one or two wrong so when these extra 3 to 5 spelling words that are thrown in last minute she gets them wrong. She has come home crying a few times because it does embarress her. What should I do? do you think it's fair that she gives them extra words that are not on the spelling sheet then marks them against them?
She's now getting 70 percents compared to 90s when the teacher didn't add extra words last minute.

The extra words aren't bonus words? That's what all of my children's teachers have done over the years. You have a set list to study from & then 3 bonus words at the end that will not count against you, but will be beneficial to you if you get them right. Actually making it possible to get 103%. I would be talking to your child's teacher about this practice. I hope you are able to get her to change this. GL
