This set of word work activities is one list in a series of 36 lists. Each list contains a specific spelling pattern to work on. We study one list each week, and assess on Friday. (The Assessment page is also included--as well as the Practice Test we give on Thursday.)
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.
You can use the lists in the same order or you can mix them up based on what skills you want your students to work on. 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 of List 27 to see all the activities included in each set as well as a Table of Contents of all the sets by Guided Reading Levels .
Each set include the same following activities to choose from:
1.) Word Sort (A few lists do not have this because they do not lend themselves to sorting.)
2.) Fill In the Blank Picture Match/ Sentence Completion
3.) ABC Order- Cut apart and paste in alphabetical order
4.) Word Collage
5.) Handwriting Practice
6.) Sentence Writing
7.) Word Boxes
8.) Circle Spelling
9.) Choo-Choo Spelling
10.) Stamp It
11.) Dough Spelling
12.) Rainbow Spelling
13.) Bingo (with 5 different BINGO mats)
14.) Practice Spelling Test
15.) Spelling Test
This is the order we teach the letters & 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.”
