Apparently doing it rong and ruining it for everyone, but I don't give a crap anymore.

Should I be concerned about weekly spelling tests on Friday for First Grade? I sort of did a preliminary search on the Internet and it appears this is "par for the course" in 1st grade nowadays. The words are very easy, but I'm just surprised that they start testing like this. There were 10 words on the list. The most difficult word was "have".
I guess I'm pretty clueless about today's standards. I know that I didn't have spelling tests in 1st grade, but that was 30 years ago. We started in 3rd grade with that kind of stuff. I consider myself to be a good speller without having had weekly spelling tests in 1st grade.
I'm curious what others think about this. Is this focus on doing spelling tests at a younger age better?
