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 second 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 & Dolch) and phonics focus words. I created this spelling program with my first grade students in mind, many of whom are English Language Learners. Below is a description of each of the 9 lists of spelling words:
Week 10: Sight words & Inflected Endings -s, -ing
Week 11: Sight words & Initial Consonant Blends
Week 12: Sight Words & Final Consonant Blends
Week 13: Sight Words, Digraphs, & Vowel Sound in ball
Week 14: Sight Words, Long a, & Consonant c.g
Week 15: Sight Words, Long i, & Digraphs
Week 16: Sight Words, Long o, & Contractions
Week 17: Sight Words, Long u, & Long e
Week 18: Sight Words & Inflected Endings -ed
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).
