Thinking of starting a spelling program in your primary classroom? Or maybe you've been implementing spelling, but are looking for something new! This pack is FILLED with resources for your students to practice spelling weekly.
This pack is the first of four and includes 9 weeks of spelling words, practice pages, homework, and tests. Each weekly spelling list features 6 words that include sight words (from Fry 100) and phonics focus words. I created this spelling program with my first grade students in mind, many of which are English Language Learners. Below is a description of each of the 9 lists of spelling words:
Week 1: Sight words & Short a
Week 2: Sight words & Short a
Week 3: Sight Words & Short i
Week 4: Sight Words & Short o
Week 5: Sight Words & Short e
Week 6: Sight Words & Short u
Week 7: Short a & Consonant Pattern -ck
Week 8: Sight Words, Short i, & Final x
Week 9: Sight Words
Here is what is included in this pack:
Pages 1-5: Intro & spelling list pacing guide
Pages 6-60: Student practice pages (for each week of spelling words, 5 different types of practice pages are included. I use these pages in my classroom as homework, morning work, as well as word work).
Pages 61-82: Student tests, teacher test guides, and a practice test (the tests are created for students to fill in the blanks within sentences that are read aloud to them by the teacher. This helps to make the connection between spelling and literacy. I have found this method to be more effective than asking my students to write down spelling words on paper with only blank lines).
