 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.

My kids are in 2nd and 4th grades and they know those words but I think they are more 5th grade words.

I feel the same could be 3rd grade or 4th grade words. I voted 4th but it could go either way

What is GARB? I looked it up, but am only finding something about Scottish clothing. That doesn't sound like something that should be in a elementary schools vocabulary. Actually looking at the list, all of them seem kind of strange. I'm 30 years old and never used most of those and have only used the others maybe a handful of times.

I voted 2nd.
