I created this file to help my students master basic spelling/phonics skills. My students had some major gaps in their learning and this file targets those gaps. This will help any child who lacks basic skills. It's designed to teach students the different spellings of the most common digraphs, long vowels, vowel pairs, r controlled vowels, and so much more. The lists in this file are also appropriate for older students who never mastered phonics.
The steps build on each other. You will want to work on each step until the class has mastered it.
Each step has a page with the rule for the teacher, a poster for students, a list of words that follow that rule, and a spelling list to send home. Almost all of the spelling lists have 15 words and 5 bonus words. All lists have a total of 20 words.
