We have used Words Their Way for years but have been finding it hard to make sure we are meeting standards and also TEACHING the spelling patterns well. (especially when there was more than one list going on!)
This is a fun and engaging packet for students to practice and learn important spelling skills! Included in this pack is a worksheet version and an Interactive Notebook version!
What is addressed in this packet: Short Vowel review (CVC: a, e, i, o, u words)
Short vowels with beginning blends/digraphs
Short vowels with ending blends/digraphs
Long Vowel Review:
CVC vs. CVCe (hug/huge)
Long vowel sorting (a,e, i, o, u)
This is designed to use at the beginning of second grade. It could also work towards the middle/end of first grade depending on where your students would fall.
Word list and note to parents (all on one sheet to save time and paper)
Write It: Students will write their words 2 times each
Graph It: Students will graph the spelling patterns from words listed in a box above. These words are their spelling words.
Spin It: Students will make a paperclip spinner and spin and write certain words with spelling patterns
Graph It 2: Students will graph words like in "Graph It" but these words are similar words with the same spelling patterns but are not on the list sent home.
Would You Rather Writing Prompt: Each week will have a "would you rather" prompt for kids to write about
Correct It: Students will look for misspelled words in sentences and correct it and will find the correctly spelled words within 3 similar spellings of words
Additional assessment for each week will be coming soon!
Please check out my blog (coming soon) for a look into this! Our second graders at our school made incredible progress working through these packets!
Look for a bundle for the year-coming very soon!
