*** Product Updated 26th January 2017 - Now included EDITABLE word document (.doc) for you to change the colours/fonts of the words to suit your needs. PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD IF NECESSARY ***
For the essential words you need on your word wall, this is the product you need!
This product contains 404 of the most commonly used words, so common in fact that these are the words that students are expected to know how to read, write and spell by the end of grade 4/fourth grade!
This list of words is PERFECT for your class WORD WALL. Simply print, laminate and cut these words out, then attach to your word wall alphabetically. The BEST PART about these words though is that they are COLOUR CODED FOR TEACHER REFERENCE!
*The 1st 100 words are purple
*The 2nd 100 words are blue
The 3rd 100 words are green
*The 4th 100 words are red
Students do not need to know what these colours mean, but it is a quick and easy way for teachers to keep track of and organise their word walls; I.E. starting the year only with the purple (top 100) words, then add a new set of 100 words each term/quarter; or, telling students that they must know the purple and blue words by the end of the year (for example).
This product is designed to be used in its entirety, however you can of course only use some of the sets of 100 words to suit your needs.
These words are alligned to Australian standards, however they are common High Frequency Words (HFW) or sight words, so will suit many purposes.
This product comes with two versions of the words; one version is using the default 'Calibri' font found on all Microsoft Office programs, whilst the second version is using the Victorian Modern Cursive (VMC) font.
