Spelling Curriculum - Grade 1 Routine is a complete spelling
curriculum, encompassing some basic Language Arts skills, for Grade 1. No workbooks are necessary; simply make a copy of each page in the document for each student in the class. The complete word list for the week is on each page.
Cut pages, collate, and bundle the spelling lists. Put these bundles in a folder with the day of the week at the top for easy location of the correct sheet, taking out the page needed for each day.
In the first week of school, give careful instruction and guidance in how to complete each page. Then, have the sheets on the students’ desks when they arrive in the morning. Check the papers by lunchtime and have them for the students to take home in the afternoon.
The flow of the Spelling Curriculum - Grade 1 Routine is as follows:
Monday - Students are given the Spelling List for that week. They read each word to the teacher. Then, they are given the Monday spelling sheet on which they write each word two times.
Tuesday - Highlight 5 of the words and write them in alphabetical order.
Wednesday - Draw a shape box around each word.
Thursday - Illustrate two of the words. Are they nouns? Circle Yes or No.
Friday - Take the test. Get a 100!
