A WHOLE YEAR OF SPELLING LISTS IS READY FOR YOU TO USE!! Rather than using the predetermined book list, I have always aligned the second grade word wall list to the weekly spelling lists provided by the series. These lists align to the Wonders reading series.
This year long pack also allows you to DIFFERENTIATE! There are 5 words on each list that are considered everybody words. The remaining five are picked by the students. After introducing and practicing the focus sill for the week, the class helps brainstorm other words that fit the skill for the week. Words brainstormed can be big or little. Once a selection of words is established, students choose from the list to complete the rest of their list. I have tested spelling this way for several years now and have seen how students take ownership in learning their words for the week.
This YEAR LONG pack includes:
*34 weekly lists
*lined paper to copy onto the back of the lists for activities on the back
*spelling test format
****Please note that every 6th week is skipped. This is considered a unit test week in the Wonders reading series. During this week I break away from the traditional list and practice special endings, contractions, etc. with supplemental materials.
