I have combined Part 1 and Part 2 into ONE file, making it more convenient for you!
Don't just ask students to memorize words for a spelling test! Teach them how to spell. Meaningful spelling practice can be found here.
This product was designed for 2nd grade, but can be used as needed. This would be great as your spelling curriculum throughout the year!
Students love the mixture of real words, nonsense words, sight words, and sentence dictation. If you are looking for a new spelling sequence that is based on the Orton-Gillingham method this is a great program. The sight words (red words) are largely selected from Dolch Word lists. The sequence is roughly based on "Recipe for Reading," but NOT exactly aligned.
*Spelling tests include some words provided on the study sheet as well as some new words that match the weekly concept to truly assess understanding of the skill. Tests include isolated spelling practice as well as spelling in context through dictation.

*I do not claim affiliation with these programs. I have simply created a spelling curriculum that is inspired by the Orton-Gillingham methods but meets the needs of my personal classroom. While inspired by it, the sequence of units may be slightly varied from "Recipe for Reading."
