Hi MissC83...yes I did check through their work and they knew I was going to, so they were more careful of copying the words down. Actually, the copying was never a problem, it was the pretest words. Some would check off words that they thought were correct, even if they were misspelled. Once we went over the routine and checking carefully though, they were better about it. I was really lucky this year to have a phenomenal class, we'll see how it goes this coming year!
