For example: if my word is "reach" I look on the sheet and the letter "r" coordinates with the number 7, so I write down 7. The letter "e" coordinates with the number 3, so I write down 3 next to the 7. The letter "a" coordinates with the number 2, so I write down 2 next to the number 3~and so on. My number for the word "reach" is: 73224.
Five Times Each- Write each of your spelling words 5 times each.

I would write it like this: friend.
