This spelling dictionary serves as a personal word wall, including many frequently used words for students and spaces for them to fill in additional words. Words are based on Fry's 1000 words and other frequently used words, including common core related words. Each page has cursive and print letters in both capital and lowercase as a reminder of proper letter formation.
Also included is a "try it" page, in which students can try to write a word before asking someone else, see what looks correct, and then get teacher assistance if necessary, honing the skill of visualizing proper spelling.
To assemble, print all pages (double sided in landscape format, flipping horizontally/on the short end), keeping them together, then fold in half "hamburger style", adding the front cover, and stapling along the center fold.
Fonts are Century Gothic (System Font) and Learning Curve (by Blue Vinyl, free for commercial use).
