You know how some students keep making the same spelling mistakes over and over, and you think to yourself “I really need to track this,” but you forget? Did you forget because you didn’t have an awesome way to organize the data?
I didn't have a good way to organize the misspelling patterns I noticed from students I work with, so I made my own!
There are two text size options for these worksheets; people will have different preferences depending on how they process and organize information, and who is using the worksheet.
If you are having a student analyze their own misspellings, use the big worksheet.
If you're working to find patterns for 20 different students, the smaller print - each student gets their own page - might be ideal for you.

These worksheets are a great choice for those who don’t choose to follow a set spelling curriculum. Observe which words kids USE in authentic ways but can't spell correctly yet. Choose words and patterns to teach, work toward mastery, then choose new words and repeat the process. (To help with your decision-making, maybe find a scope and sequence of reading / spelling development that can help you figure out which patterns to focus on first.)
