This packet includes spelling lists, spelling tests (with answer keys), and worksheet organizers for the weekly word sort workbook page for each lesson in Unit 5 of the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys Reading Series. The spelling lists are designed to be cut apart so that students can keep a list of words at home and at school. The bottom of the lists have a menu of possible spelling activities students may complete during the week.
The spelling tests have an added vocabulary component. After spelling the words correctly on the blank lines, students match the sentences, synonyms, or analogies at the bottom of the page to the spelling words. There are 8 lines at the bottom of the test for bonus words. In addition to the 5 challenge words that may be used as bonus, I give 3 "surprise" words from other areas of study.
I have also included a worksheet that I use to replace the word sort workbook page from the Reader's Notebook because it is difficult for students to fit the words in the boxes provided. It could also be used strictly for students requiring modifications, as its structure makes the number of spelling words in each category obvious.
