Handing students a list of spelling words, will help students “memorize” how to spell them. Where’s the fun in that? Teaching students spelling patterns then having them search for words with the taught spelling pattern, will help them understand and retain new words to build their academic vocabulary and enhance word recognition. Now that’s fun!
You can use these worksheets to allow students to create their own spelling list with your guidance or you can use these worksheets to compliment your lessons. Either way these worksheets allow students to get out of their seat, which is what they love most, to actively learn.
