Do your students ever struggle spelling a word? This Word Book acts as a personal spelling dictionary for students. It's a great go-to reference to help them be more independent during writing time.
There are 25 alphabet pages (x and y share a page) and 15 other reference pages.
Each alphabet page includes a word list of frequently used words and lines to write additional words as students need them.
The reference pages include: 2 spelling help pages, 2 holiday pages, 1 calendar page, 1 color page, 2 number pages, 2 shape pages, 1 family page, 1 places page (with blank lines to write local places), 1 school page (with blank lines to write your school name, teacher name, etc), 1 class page (with blank lines to write your student's names), and 1 writing checklist.
I have 3 options for the Word Book pages. You can print them without page numbers (in case you just want to use some of the reference pages), with page numbers on the top of each page, or page numbers on the bottom.
I have also included many cover options that include the titles "My Word Book," "My Spelling Dictionary," and "My Spelling Notebook."
I like to copy the covers on colored card stock and bind the pages together to make the Word Books more durable. You can copy a Word Book for each student or copy a few and place them in your writing center.
