Built on a set of thirty acrostics, this 160-page packet includes 30 "Spelling Scramble" assessments with vocabulary lists and answer keys, two "Spell 'n Search" mazes with answer keys, "Typewriter" game cards and instructions, and suggestions for use in the classroom. Word lists include Greek and Latin roots, suffixes, and prefixes; absorbed prefixes; vowel changes; words from other languages; words often misspelled, and many more. Instruction and assessment emphasize the connection between spelling and vocabulary. Although intended primarily for seventh and eighth grade levels, these activities are also appropriate for high school students. This packet will take you through an entire year of spelling and vocabulary!
