This is a beginning of the year spelling activity packet. This packet is meant to be implemented over the course of a four day span. On the fifth day, the spelling test is to be administered. You can also give a pre spelling test on day one if you'd like! This is one of many StoryTown spelling activities. This short /a/ pattern doesn't have to be one that is implemented as a test prior to giving a spelling test but rather, a way to practice the short a spelling pattern! Be sure to check out Lesson 2! It has the same format, which provides students with consistency and the ability to eventually complete these activities independently.
Day 1: spelling word sort
Day 2: more complex spelling word sort
Day 3: spelling word triangle
Day 4: spelling word search
Day 5: Spelling test with option for bonus words
