This set of word work activities contains blank templates for you to create your own Word Work activities with any word list you might have. Most of the activities are the same as the Spelling Word Work Activities that I created to go with our word lists. You can use it if you need to have a different list for some of your students. Because of copyrights, I can not post an editable version, but you can write in the words and make copies.
I have created 36 lists of words for spelling. Each list contains a spelling pattern. The list is made based on the letters and spelling patterns we have introduced in class.
We use them in 1st Grade, but you can also use them for students who need extra practice in 2nd grade or Kindergarten students who are ready for a challenge.
They are all very simple for students to complete on their own, so ideal for independent work or in a Word Study/ Word Work/ Spelling Work Station.
Please download the PREVIEW to see all the activities included.
Each set include the same following activities to choose from:
1.) Word Sort
2.) Fill In the Blank
3.) ABC Order- Cut apart and paste in alphabetical order
4.) Word Collage
5.) Handwriting Practice
6.) Sentence Writing
7.) Circle Spelling
8.) Choo-Choo Spelling
9.) Stamp It
10.) Rainbow Spelling
11.) Bingo (with 5 different BINGO mats)
12.) Practice Spelling Test
13.) Spelling Test
This is the order we teach the letters and spelling patterns:

These activities can be used in a variety of ways, but this is what I do:
• Included is a “Spelling Menu” if you like to let your students choose their activities to complete.
• I use most of the “paper and pencil” activities in a “Spelling Work Station.”
• I make a packet of activities with 5-7 activities that students start on Monday and have to finish by Friday.
• I put the “Stamp It” and “Spelling Dough,” and “BINGO” activities at a “Word Work” station.
• I send the Spelling List and the “Handwriting” pages home for homework or you can use the “Spelling Homework Menu.”
If you have any questions, please let me know.
