Product Description
Functional Spelling: Special Education Modified Alternative Pages

This spelling packet contains 18 different pages for 10 weeks/sets of spelling practice and assessment with a focus on functional words for a total of 180 different spelling pages. The English language is tricky and many of the rules we teach children are a general guideline for spelling, not a solid rule they can follow. This can be confusing, particularly to whole language learners or children with special needs including autism, Aspergers, PDD-NOS, language impairments, and other global delays. Instead of teaching patterns, this spelling packet is based on a unifying theme of functional words. The ten sets of words were created for all learners to be successful and have a maximum of six letters in a word. The spelling word sets include

★ Body Parts
★ Clothing
★ Colors
★ Commands
★ Farm Animals
★ Food
★ Hygiene
★ Manners
★ Numbers
★ Transportation

These lists were generated to include words most often in students’ language and learning. The 19 different printable pages for each set of words are used for spelling mastery, each page providing a different way to learn the ten words in a set in a meaningful way. This includes

• Stamping the words
• Coloring bubble letters
• Circling the correctly spelling words
• Pyramid writing
• Shape puzzles
• Adding the missing letter
• Draw the words
• Alphabetizing the words
• Bubble letters for playdough
• Circle the correct spelling words
• Circle and write the correct spelling words
• Complete the sentence
• Graphing
• Match the word to a picture
• Shape puzzle
• Sorting words by number
• Tracing words
• Writing the words

Have your student or students work on the sheets and note which way they seem to learn best. The activities are great for small group or individual practice. I have turned several of the activities into laminated file folders and use them during individual work practice. These are also excellent to send home for spelling practice if for at home completion.
