This is a first grade list of skills for our new Benchmark Advance program. It includes all 10 units and lists the Phonics Skill, Spelling words and high frequency words. I wanted to create dictation sentences to use for assessment rather than the old format of spelling tests. These dictation sentences include both the spelling and high frequency words. (Some may be a bit silly.) Also, I decided that I wanted 5 high frequency words each week so you will see words with an * when I added to my list. These added words have been picked from the unused words on the Fry and Dolch lists. You do not need to use these words if you are going to stick to the words with the program. Words that are in red are words that are listed in both the spelling and high frequency word list.
