Do you have struggling readers & spellers in your 1st grade classroom? If so, these approaching-level spelling lists are for you!
-Or- Do you dream of differentiating your weekly spelling lists with great success? Use this packet (the "approaching" level), along with the "on-level" & "beyond level" spelling lists and you will be set for a year of differentiated word study!
These spelling lists feature a "spelling rule" for each week, as well as review words and word-wall (sight/high-frequency) words. These labels align with the First Grade Macmillan/McGraw-Hill Treasures Reading series. This kit includes all on-level words from Units 1 - 6 (a total of 30 weeks).
On the bottom of each list you will see 4 "spelling squares" which I have the parents initial each weeknight as their child practices the weekly spelling words. This holds students accountable for practicing!
To go with these lists, please download my FREEBIE titled "Creative Spelling Squares" which has great ideas for student spelling practice.
BONUS!!! These lists are ready to print onto Avery 3x5 Labels (which I then place into the students' planners each week).
