Please Note: You must have the Reading Horizons Program (copyright year 2010) in order to use the spelling lists, dictation sentences and most common word lists for this unit. You will need to teach your students lessons (1-68) from the Reading Horizons Program that will correlate with the spelling word lists and dictation sentences provided in this phonics unit.
***Early intervention with phonics is key to a young learner’s success. If your students are coming to you with little to no phonemic awareness, this program is for you.
This unit contains 26 spelling lists. One list has easier words and the other more difficult words.
Each spelling list has its own set of dictation sentences to use as an assessment.
*I have also included three extra spelling lists with dictation sentences for the Halloween, Christmas and Valentine holidays.
There are 29 spelling lists in all.
Ways to Use this Unit:
I recommend using this program with 2nd through 4th graders. Depending on the make up of your classroom, a teacher might choose to use list A for her lower level students and list B for her above average students.
Second Grade could teach the lessons from Reading Horizons and use List A and Third Grade could review the lessons 1-68 from Reading Horizons and use List B. Or teachers may choose to begin List A in second/third grade and continue List B in fourth grade.
I hope that you find this to be a helpful asset to a wonderful reading/phonics program designed by Reading Horizons. The rules and guidelines are lifelong learning tools for readers to use during their spelling, reading and writing success!
