When our district adopted a new curriculum for Language Arts, I liked it, but wondered how was I going to incorporate the spelling skills into my homework?
This new resource offers lists for all 30 weeks featured in the Benchmark Advance program!!! Just print and add them to your weekly homework or have students work on them in class.
Each list features the 10 words included in the program and an additional 5, for a total of 15 words. Also included are a pair of homophones that correspond to the skill for the week! These can be used as part of the required list or as bonus words.
Each list has 3 columns of word work: a TRACE the word, COPY the word, and SPELL the word on your own. It's great practice for the week! These lists can easily be used with spelling activities or journals you currently use in your classroom:)
BONUS!!! Also included are printable word cards with each lists' phonics skill highlighted... PERFECT for your pocket chart display!!!
Also, take a glance at my PHONICS THINKING MAPS that coordinate with each weeks' skill:

I hope this resource is helpful as you, like me, transition to a new program.
