PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Working with word families is an effective way to get kids reading and help them learn to decode longer words.
This book of spelling lists combines word families and spelling patterns that are important for children to learn in order to become lifelong spellers and readers.

Kids also learn to apply the skills they have learned to new words. These lists introduce a pattern and 5 words that follow that pattern. Children are asked to practice these and be ready to write 5 new words that follow the same pattern.

High frequency words are also introduced each week and are added to a word bank at the bottom of the list.

Later in the year, students are asked to 3 additional high frequency words from previous weeks.

Book includes:
32 spelling lists for students
32 teacher lists with extra words and dictation sentences
3 different spelling test papers -15, 18, & 20 words
1 dictation sentence page for test day
List of Spelling tips that you can share with parents
This book is packed with 32 spelling lists...enough for an entire year...and will have them on their way to becoming awesome spellers...and readers!!

Thanks!
Hilary Lewis

We started using these spelling lists this year and we absolutely LOVE them! Instead of merely memorizing spelling words, our students are understanding the spelling patterns on a deeper level and applying them during our literacy block every day! If you're looking for a new spelling set check into these. They are great!

Thank you so much for your awesome comment! I'm so glad you like the lists and find they work well for your kids!

Hi Julie, I actually did not get that done this summer. I am so sorry. I am going to still try and work on it during the school year though. I was gone for so much of the summer, that I didn't accomplish even half my list of things to do! Who am I kidding? I didn't even get a quarter of it done! I promise I will work on it down.

I own your Spelling List Taht Make Sense - First Grade. I have used for two years with a lot of success. We are using a new reading series and I have to use those spelling words. I was wondering if I could have an editable template so I could use the words I have to use this year. I want to continue to use high frequency words too. I am willing to purchase the template. I know sometimes copyrights you can't but I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Bethany

On  August 6, 2013Hilary Lewis answered:
Hi Bethany, I have tried to make an editable version, however I haven't had much luck getting it finished. It is a longer process than I thought it would be. I will be starting school next week, so I know I won't get to that for a while. Sorry about that!

On  July 25, 2013Mrs Hall (TpT Seller) asked:
Do you have a bundle for both the first grade and second grade lists? I think I am going to have several students who the first grade list will not be quite enough of a challenge but cannot afford to buy both of the packets? Trying to see what will work best for me this year. Thank you.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 25, 2013Hilary Lewis answered:
Hi Jennifer,
I tried to zip the files together, but the files are too large. If you would like to wait until the TpT sale, you will be able to save money on the two packets. Each packet then would be about $12 each. I'm not sure of the exact date for the sale, but it should be coming up soon. I think it was on August 12-13 last year. Hope this will help you out.
Thanks so much!

I am very interested in purchasing this but have a few questions!! We use the Treasures reading series, would I just do away with the spelling from that series or try to tie that plus this together? Thanks.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 22, 2013Hilary Lewis answered:
I just did away with the spelling from our series. However I did follow the spelling patterns that I was teaching that week. You could switch the weeks around so that it would coincide with when you are teaching certain skills. Does that make any sense?
Hope that helped. Just let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!
Thank you!

Hi Hilary,

I LOVE your unit! I cannot wait to use it this year! However, I purchased and downloaded your unit, but it does not include the 3 different spelling test papers -15, 18, & 20 words,1 dictation sentence page for test day, and list of Spelling tips that you can share with parents. I have downloaded it three times, and the pages only have the design on the top and bottom, along with the corner grading box.

Please help! Thank you!

Are you opening the document in 'Preview' on your Mac? If you are, then open it with the Adobe program, not preview. You should also be able to print from a Windows machine. That should get you all fixed up.

Hilary,
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your unit! I cannot wait to use it next year. I do have the following questions though:
*is each spelling word worth 1 point?
*is each word in the dictation worth one point?
*do you count the capital at the beginning as an additional point and the endmark as
another point in the dictation sentence?
*do you grade or give points for the spelling practice tips?

Just one more question.....Can you tell I am quite literal?! UGH! LOL!

Thank you so much for your help.

On  May 30, 2012Hilary Lewis answered:
Hi Dawn,
You are cracking me up! Let's go through the list...
*yes, each word is 1 point
*I use 15 points for the dictation no matter how many words there are...I used to count the words, but now I just use 15.
*The capital and period/? are each worth a point
*I grade them and then the kids keep track of their scores on one of the data graphs that I have (you can get those free on here)
*Yes, I can tell you are quite literal! :)
Hope this helps!

Hillary, Where are the sight words from? Our school has to use Dolch words.

I used high frequency words from our reading series (Rigby Literacy by Design) & some Fry's words & some that I know are trouble words.

Hilary,

I LOVE what you have put together in Spelling Lists That Make Sense For First Grade, but no matter what I do I cannot get it to print. My Adobe is up to date, but I cannot get it to print. Do you have any suggestions that I could try? I have tried different printers as well.

Thank you for your time and great ideas!

Hi there,
I'm sorry you are having trouble. Have you contacted Teachers Pay Teachers? They will probably be able to help you out better than I can. Are you opening the document in 'Preview' on a Mac? If you are, then open it with the Adobe program, not preview. You should also be able to print from a Windows machine. Let me know! Sorry!

I love these lists! Unfortunately, LIST 14 has the -ill and -ell spelling pattern, but has the list 13 spelling words repeated. This is clearly an error. I purchased the packet. I am not looking forward to trying to edit this. It is a pdf. Is there any way you can forward me the corrected list?

Thank you so much for letting me know! I am so sorry that you had to deal with that. I fixed the file and it has been re-downloaded. You should be receiving an email about it. Just download it again! Let me know if you have any other issues!
