I have created 101 word lists that are ideal for kids to use during Word Work centers, word study, or to be used as spelling lists. I have my students use these lists to stamp their words, build them with magnet letters, or write them on their white boards.
They are also great for differentiating instruction, because while one group of kids may be working on digraphs, another group may be working on magic e words. All your students can be working on the same activities, but with their own lists of words that are right for their levels.
The lists begin with CVC word families and then progress to skills such as digraphs, blends, word endings, magic e and other long vowels, and diphthongs. The lists end with –tion and –sion endings. For a full list of the phonics/word features covered in this pack of word lists, hover your cursor over the thumbnail pictures for a view of the complete Table of Contents.
Also, the lists are progressive, which means that the words in each list will only contain phonics/spelling skills that have been practiced with previous lists. The only exception to this is lists that might contain a sight word that contains the phonics/spelling skill.
Most of the lists contain 7 words, but a few lists do have 5-6 words depending on the skill (for example, the “wh” list has 5 words because there are fewer “wh” words that are appropriate for young spellers/readers).
