End your frustrations over students memorizing word lists and still continuing to misspell words in their writing with Spelling Scholar. Word study lessons for the entire year. Not just an idea book! Complete units that meet the Common Core Standards approach word work from three sides: lessons, word sorts and personal words. Spelling Scholar includes inquiry based lessons, student practice, dictionary work, 3 levels of word sorts so students can work on a skill with words at their level, projects, application based tests (not memorized lists), and answer keys. The words in the most difficult level of word sort are meant to help build vocabulary. Both units and tests include review of previously learned skills so students can’t just forget or dismiss prior learning. Personal words (words misspelled in daily writing) are teacher controlled and student managed. No extra work for the teacher! Suggested word wall flash cards and word wall size words plus activities are included. Training power point is included.
Grade 1 includes 32 units focusing on short and long vowel word families, consonant blends and digraphs, adding inflected endings, compound words, homophones, and silent letters.
