In this series there are 5 workbooks for the “cvc words” taught in Grade 1.
The workbooks have been produced by me. (I am an experienced teacher, having taught in South African and in International Schools). They are designed for learners to learn the spelling words in an interesting way. Differentiation is very important in the early years. Learners could work in groups, in pairs or individually.

This will give the learners confidence and a sense of achievement. They will still need support to ensure their success and to encourage a lifelong love of writing and reading.
