This packet contains 40 printable pages to help your students increase their word knowledge and spelling skills. Each page can stand alone for independent or partner work. Or, you can print four packets, each with 10 pages and a cover page for early finishers, Gifted students, or students who want to improve their grades. Each lesson encourages students to think on their own, to consult others for suggestions, and to consult a dictionary for correct spelling.
