 Okay the words are:

ordeal                   garb                  abiding             pummeled           skivvy

umbrage            blithely               rancid           resonated         discerning

 

I thought some of them were a little much... but maybe that's me.

Many of you were right on the money with 3rd grade.  My ds is not having an issue with them (thank God he doesn't have to spell them) I just thought they would be a higher grade.  More like middle school.  But then again I went to school in the 80's.  The rigor was different, not nec. less but a diff focus.

Looks like 3rd grade out of some bug book they are reading.

My 1st graders had pummeled as a spelling word, but the others look a little more advanced so I say 2nd.
