This is a personalized and differentiated spelling program that you can use for the whole year in primary. If you do not have a lot of time to devote to spelling instruction, this set will help you to teach your students valuable spelling chunks, word families, digraphs, and more, just at their level!
There are no spelling lists provided. Please read on to find out the reason why!
Each week the class is given a new spelling chunk (word family, spelling rule, etc.). The class brainstorms a list together with the teacher. Each student chooses words at their level and completes a spelling brochure throughout the week. At the end of each week the students give each other their personalized spelling tests.
This program is ideal for split classes, for classes with a wide variety of needs, and for students who enjoy having choice. Activities can be completed during literacy stations or whole class.
Along with the spelling brochures (44 to choose from), you will create a bulletin board with a key picture/word from each spelling chunk. Pennant letters to label your bulletin board are included. There are extra chunk circles provided in case you want to add extras that you aren't spending a whole week on.
Please note, as the spelling lists are generated by the class, there are NO SPELLING WORDS/LIST included in this packet. Teachers can choose to create their own lists before photocopying the lists (by hand-writing the list in), but there is much greater buy-in and engagement when the students are able to choose their own words.
