  Eighth Grade Spelling & Vocabulary Lists Spelling and vocabulary quizzes are given on Fridays. If the week does not include a Friday, there will be no spelling and vocabulary quiz. There is the possibility that a quiz may be canceled because a week contains a major deadline for another English test or project, but this is a rare occurrence and will be announced in class and posted on PowerSchool. Quizzes involve spelling each word correctly and matching it with its definition. They also include providing the definition of each root or prefix. As the year goes on, the format will change to include demonstration of understanding how to correctly use the words in context.
