Product Description

This unit includes 30 weeks of spelling tests appropriate for First Grade students. Each week, there are 10 words that follow a spelling pattern and 2 sight words. I give a pre-test on the BLUE list of words to all students. If a child scores a 80% or higher, I give them the RED (challenge) list of spelling words that week.

These tests also include a dictated sentence. The sentence has the two sight words included as well as one or two patterned words from that week. There are also boxes at the bottom with +, ✓, or – to make it easy to grade capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and neatness.

Included in this packet:

1. Directions of how I use this in my classroom.
