Students who need sight word practice, but are too old for 'cutesy', will love this product! Practice spelling sight words for homework, morning work, or independent centers, with no-prep and a mature looking format.
These modified spelling lists and activities will provide your upper elementary students the sight word practice they need without being embarrassed by below grade level work. Special education teachers and students will appreciate the mature formatting these spelling homework assignments offer so that students can practice their high frequency words.
¨ What makes this product unique?
As a special education inclusion teacher, it is so hard to find work my 5th grade students need that does not look too ‘cutesy’. My kids are already embarrassed that they are working below grade level, I never want to call attention to it by adding pictures of puppies and rainbows on their worksheets. This packet of materials has the formatting, fonts, and overall look a typical upper elementary worksheet would have; but the words they are practicing are below grade level. Students will be able to work on the skills they need, without feeling as though they are not doing the rigorous work their peers are working on.
¨ What words does this resource use? Are they matched to a specific grade level?
To ensure this could benefit as many students as possible, the words chosen are not linked to any specific grade level. I have used the words from the ‘1000 most frequently used word list’. The words are introduced in order of frequency; for instance, the words on list one are used more frequently than the words on list ten. Each list includes 15 words from the list. please double check the word lists before purchase to ensure the level of difficulty is appropriate.
¨ What activities are included with my purchase?
With your purchase, you will receive one pre-test and 4 randomly selected activities for each list. There are 10 activities that could be used for the list: three times each, rainbow words, right hand/left hand/eyes closed, error check, word search, crossword puzzle, sentences, word sort, ABC order and matching. The preview shows one page of each activity, so you can get a good feel for what the activity entails. Please double check the preview to be sure your students can complete the activities.
¨ Do I have to prep anything?
No. Everything is done for you. Simply print, copy and go! There is even a page for the post-test!
¨ Is this product editable?

¨ Can I use this with lower grade level students?
