This product Includes three differentiated levels!

Level 1 (indicated by an asterisk) includes the SECOND GRADE "on grade level" phonics and trick words for 3rd grade students who need more foundational practice mastering the 2nd grade concepts.

Level 2 (indicated by level a) is "on grade level" for third grade and includes phonics words and trick words for every Fundations Third Grade Unit!

Level 3 (indicated by level b) is "above grade level" and includes more sophisticated words and vocabulary, while still incorporating the third grade phonics concepts and all third grade Trick Words.

Printables are ready to copy--make one to send home and one for a classroom spelling notebook. A Spelling Challenge printable and system for weekly tests are also included. This ready-to-go complete package will save you time and will enhance your children’s spelling.
