This spelling dictionary is geared to aid students and teachers in grades 2-5. 1,200 of the most commonly used words in writing are listed alphabetically and in a visually pleasing order for students to use as a resource. Eliminate the students asking how to spell common words. These 1,200 words are the most commonly written words in children's writing and make up 89% of adult reading. There are spaces for students to write in words that may not be included in the list (names of friends, pets, etc.). This file also included transition words and phrases for elaborating, showing time, showing position, and comparing/contrasting. You will also find lists of words (days of the week, months of the year, color words, number, words, etc.)
