Word work/spelling are important components of any balanced literacy program. Houghton Mifflin provides weekly spelling words with specific spelling patterns that complement the story of the week. I've created spelling tests that not only assess if students can spell their words correctly, but also see if they can sort them under the correct spelling or vowel sound pattern. Double whammy!
This product contains 5 spelling tests for Theme 4: Amazing Animals.
Officer Buckle and Gloria
The Great Ball Game
Frequently Misspelled Words
Theme 4 Wrap Up
The Houghton Mifflin Teacher Manuals have the word lists as well as answer keys (see practice book pages in the back of the TE).
I hope you find these helpful!
