This pack includes the entire year's worth of spelling lists for McGraw Hill's Reading Wonders for 1st grade. Each list is shown twice on each page to save paper when printing.
I print these off and send them home with the students to study for their weekly spelling tests. I simply staple them to their spelling homework.
Units 1.1-3.5 feature solely the spelling words, but Units 4.1-6.5 include dictation sentences. If you're unfamiliar with dictation sentences, let me explain what I use them for! I make the kiddos put their pencils down and listen to me say the sentence. They then echo the sentence. Next we say it together as a class and hold up a finger for each word we say, so that they have a visual of how many words they need to write down for their sentence. I say the sentence one more time, then instruct them to write.
By using these dictation sentences, I’m looking for five specific things: listening/comprehension skills (did they write down the correct words), capital letter at the beginning, punctuation at the end, spaces between words, and words spelled correctly.
I hope you find this product useful and I hope it saves you valuable time! Email me if you have any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org
**I also have an edition available for 2nd grade!!**

UPDATE: 9/20/16 - I updated the product to make it editable. Now you can add your own dictation sentences for units 1-3, or delete the dictation sentences for units 4-6.
