This year-long spelling program was born of frustration with text-book programs that did not meet the needs of my students. It is based on spelling patterns, phonemes, and high frequency words that support the reading and writing skills of young learners. Two years in the making, this program is classroom tested. It is perfect for differentiating learning and engaging your students. The program is arranged into six units of six lessons each. The first lesson in each unit is "No Excuse" words. These are high-frequency words that may or may not fit expected spelling patterns, but students are expected to spell them correctly all the time, no excuses. The next four lessons are focused on a particular spelling pattern or phoneme. The last lesson in each unit is a review, with the list words being taken from the first five lessons in the unit.
Included are 36 spelling lists in two versions. One version has space for you to add two "bonus" words of your own choosing. ( I like to use math vocabulary words for the bonus words.) There is also a two-page practice activity for each spelling list (These are great for in-class or homework assignments),a master list of all words taught throughout the year, teacher notes and ideas for using the program to differentiate, and a complete answer key.
