Spelling activities that are editable can be used with any word list making them perfect for spelling practice in differentiated spelling centers or for spelling homework. The included spelling test templates make planning your pre and post spelling test easy.

These editable spelling worksheets are super quick to make. Just type in your spelling word list (yours or the included list) and the spelling words are auto-generated on every spelling practice page. Print and you're ready to go. You'll have 49 engaging activities to motivate your students to learn their words.

Use the included look, say, cover, write, check spelling visual to help your students understand that learning spelling is more than just writing a word over and over.

Using the visual as a guide, students look at the word. This involves more than looking at its shape. The spelling visual encourages students to look for patterns or little words within the focus word. They say the word and tap out the sounds they hear. Tapping the word allows students to hear the phonemes that make up the word rather than seeing the word as a single unit. The visual is used to cover the word while your students write it on their activity sheet.
