This differentiated yearly first-grade spelling unit is a great way to get your students learning new words. This unit includes 32 weeks of spelling tests. 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 80% or higher, I give them the GOLD (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: PDF and Google Slides versions

  • Overview of 32 weeks of spelling words.
  • Recording pages (quarters and trimesters).
