This weekly spelling pretest word practice is aligned with 1st grade Benchmark Advanced.
It follows the weekly spelling patterns and high frequency words for units 1 to 10. Fold the paper in half and dictate the spelling words (I do this with sentences too!) to students at the beginning of the week. Each week has no more than 10 words; usually 6 spelling pattern words and 4 high frequency words. My students really like this beginning-of-the-week challenge.
