Product Description
Spelling instruction should not be a random list of words sent home at the beginning of the week to be memorized and then forgotten after the test. Spelling should be taught in conjunction with the phonics skills that are being taught in the classroom. In this second unit of diphthongs, I have created activities that can be used as homework, literacy centers, or both. Using these activities for both helps close the gap for children who do not get homework support at home.

Year-Long Constructing Readers, Spellers, and Writers

This is the twenty-second week of first-grade spelling instruction.

This unit contains instruction on the diphthongs A, AW, and AU !

This resource contains the following posters, printables, and activities.

*Suggested Word List has both nonsense and real words for you to use during instruction. After teaching the diphthongs from the phonics posters, I have students practice on whiteboards.

*Spelling/Phonics Rule Poster gives visual support for the diphthongs you are teaching.

*Class Posters give visual reinforcement for the letter/sound combinations. I hang them where they can be a reference point as I teach them.

*Assessment Paper has two sheets per page to save ink and paper.

Homework & Literacy Resources

*Parent Letter helps explain this new philosophy and gain parental support.

*Activities/Printables can be sent home in a packet for weekly homework or used in the classroom for literacy centers.
