These newsletters / study guides go along with the McGraw-Hill Wonders Reading program for Grade 1. This packet includes differentiated spelling lists for the approaching level students (orange), on level students (blue), or beyond level students (green) for differentiated instruction!
Black and white versions have the following code for differentiation.
AL= Approaching Level
OL= On Level
BL= Beyond Level
I differentiate my spelling lists on how the students do on their pretest each week. If a student gets 0-1 wrong, they get the beyond- level list. If a student gets 2-5 wrong, they get the on-level list. If a child gets more than 5 wrong, they get the approaching level list for the week.
Each newsletter / study guide includes the Essential Question, the Genre, the Comprehension Strategy, the Comprehension Skill, Spelling words, High Frequency words, and the Vocabulary words covered each week.
Thank you for downloading this packet.
Please leave feedback. I'd love to hear what you think. I hope you find them as helpful as I do.
