Are you in need of an effective spelling program for your first graders? Super Spellers! Spelling Program may be just want you need!
Concepts covered include : Silent E, Long Vowel Sounds, Other jobs of Silent E, Vowel teams (ee, oa/ow, ay/ai, Wild Colt), R-Controlled, Soft G, Vowel Diphthongs (oi/oy, ou/ow, aw/au), plus more!
This program is NOT just a weekly list of random words for your students to memorize. Instead, your students will learn spelling rules through explicit and systematic instruction. Each "week" will cover a particular concept and students will become familiar with words that follow the spelling concept. You will find that the order in which words are introduced are efficient and logical. For example, your students will not see the word 'cheese' during the early digraph unit. Rather, they will learn 'ch' using already known concepts (short vowels) to build words such as chin and chip.
Please note, these are actual lesson plans that can be read from like a script, making them easy to use when a teacher's aid or substitute needs to fill in! The lessons themselves are planned out for you, you just need to add students! I recommend breaking your students into groups based on their current level and go from there!
The contents of this packet include:
*16 weeks worth of lessons, covering concepts appropriate for the
second half of the First Grade school year (or beginning of the
year for your second graders who may be behind).
*Materials for an Interactive Spelling Folder (you will find students
who are reluctant to use pencil and paper will being to blossom
using these folders!)
*A "testing" Booklet
*A Weekly Send Home Supplement (a half sheet of paper with a list
of review words, new words, and an explanation of the new
concept so parents can be more involved in helping their child)
