Journeys Spelling Test Forms and Spelling Lists for Second Grade
An ENTIRE YEAR of spelling tests and lists at your fingertips and all ready to go!
This Friendly Monster-themed packet includes two versions of spelling lists and three versions of assessments for each week of the Journeys literacy program. Select the lists and assessment forms that best meet the needs of your second graders!
ASSESS SPELLING: Spelling Test forms can be used for both pre- and post-tests.
IMPROVE WRITING SKILLS: Two versions of the spelling tests include lines for a sentence to help students develop punctuation, capitalization, letter formation and spacing skills. Give your budding writers a dictation or proofreading sentence and track their progress each week. Weekly accountability has helped my students think more carefully about their writing! Yay!
BUILD READING FLUENCY WITH HIGH-FREQUENCY WORDS! All of the lists and tests in this file include the high-frequency words from each week’s story. Kids can practice them at school and at home, knowing they will be asked to read them to the teacher on spelling test day. High-frequency words are printed right on the spelling test.
I have the high-frequency words for each lesson on our Focus Wall through the week. After gathering spelling test papers on the last day of each week, I set the class to work on their independent literacy practice and quickly call students back one at a time to read the high-fluency words from the large cards, flashcard style. So fast and easy! These cards then become our Word Wall words, allowing students access to them all year long. This has helped a great deal with mastery of sight words and with correct spelling when writing! Hooray!
Streamline your year, save tons of time, and help your students build spelling accuracy, polish their writing skills and master sight words, too!
