Phonics Based Spelling Assessments for 1st Grade
What educators are saying
We all know that having students memorize random spelling lists every week does NOT work! As soon as the week is over, the students forget how to spell the words. Try Phonics-Based Spelling instead! These lists allow students to practice their phonics skills while you giving you an insight on whether or not your students actually know each skill.
Phonics-Based Spelling for 1st Grade Includes:
- Spelling Assessments for 30 phonics skills.
- Each skill includes a word list, 2 assessments that are perfect to use as a pre and post-test, and a recording sheet.
- Skills follow a logical Science of Reading Scope & Sequence.
- Phonics Skills include:
• short a, e, i o, u
• beginning blends
• final blends
• -nk, -ng
• soft c/g
• long a_e
• long i_e
• long o_e
• Long u
• er, ir, ur
• oo (as in moon)
• oo (as in book)
• 3 Letter Blends
How do I use Phonics-Based Spelling in my classroom?
•Send home the word list at the beginning of the week. *I explain to the parents that the word list is simply a list of word examples that follow the phonics skill. I do not want them to “memorize” these words. I want the students to truly understand the skill.
•Give the first test early in the week after introducing the phonics skill. Use this as a guide to know which students need additional help with this skill.
•The second test can be given at the end of the week as a final assessment.
•You can use the dictation sentences as bonus points or as part of the actual assessment. Another option would be to use the dictation sentences as a differentiated option for higher students.
*These spelling assessments are very similar to the ones in the 1st Grade Phonics Curriculum.
