This word study packet is designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of spelling pattern/sound relationships. These NO PREP worksheets will build on and extend the lessons in Journeys Grade 1 curriculum. Students will practice each spelling pattern in a variety of ways. (see explanation of activities below) Once students learn the target spelling pattern, they will be able to apply that knowledge to the weekly spelling words rather than memorizing them.
These sheets are great for centers, homework, small group, and independent practice.
