This is a second 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.) The last couple weeks have more sentences as it was hard to fit all words in only 5 sentences. The program has 10 words each week, except in Unit 3 Week 1. I wanted all weeks to have 10 words so you will see an * by words in Unit 3 week 1 where I added 2 words. I went through all the high frequency words in the program and marked them off the Fry and Dolch lists. When I needed to add a word I went to the words on the Dolch and Fry list and picked words that were not used. You do not need to use these words if you are going to stick to the words with the program.
