How to Use:
Follow the 5-Step instructions on the first page of this document (see above). Then, on the first editable page of the document, you’ll type in your spelling list one time. It will then autofill to the other pages in the pack!
You can type up to 12 words into this spelling list pack (we suggest 10 new words, and 2 review words). It’s not recommended to use less than 12 words as many of the games require the correct amount to be played properly. If your student is working on less than 12 words, simply type in additional review words to ensure the activities are filled completely. There is no harm in practicing previous spelling words.
You can then “Print” and/or “Save As” so your student can work on that word with all the different activities. Just be sure to rename the file to something unique when you save.
Ideas: Type up class names list, sight words, days of the week, months of the year, or coordinate your spelling words to match your language arts program. The words will automatically resize to fit the editable boxes throughout the packet. NOTE: While we've done our best to accommodate larger spelling words, sometimes a bit of the picture fonts might cut off an edge. This doesn't affect the game or activity, it's just something to be aware of when typing in longer words.
