As a special education teacher, I have students who are working on spelling and decoding words with blends & digraphs all year long. Whether they are identified or receiving decoding and spelling intervention, I found myself constantly searching for something that I could use with my students all year long.

With this Special Education Spelling and Intervention set, you'll find everything you need to have meaningful spelling practice for a full 40 weeks of school.

Include in this product:

40 Weeks of Spelling Lists: Each spelling list includes ten words that build upon one another. Once they have been exposed to a particular blend, digraph, or magic e sound, it can appear in future spelling lists. This allows for your students to be review sounds throughout the school year.

Blending Cards: Another daily routine that I do with my students is to work to blend sounds into words every day. We begin each day by flipping through flash card style cards and say the letters and their sounds. From there, we place them on our blending board and work to decode the letters on the board into real or nonsense words. We give a thumbs up when we find a real word.

Real vs Nonsense Words: As part of our weekly routine, we sort real versus nonsense words. It is a great way to progress monitor individual students or to get an overall look at your students' ability to decode words. I typically use this as a small group activity, but it can certainly be done independently as the school year progresses.

Weekly Homework: Also included in this product are eight weekly homework options for you to give to your students. You can choose what fits the needs of your students. I've included Missing Letter, Word Boxes, Spelling Pyramids, Invisible Letters, Write Three Times in Print, Write Three Times in Cursive, Fancy Words, and Rainbow Write.
