Word study units are different from traditional spelling units. Instead of giving students a list of words to memorize each week, these word study units focus on a specific phonics skill. Students are given explicit instruction on the phonics pattern and then have activities throughout the week that allow them to practice the phonics skill, and investigate and discover the patterns in words.
Included in this resource:
- A research-based, SoR-aligned Scope and Sequence
- Master Word Study List
- Word Study Teacher Guide
- Word cards
- 3 Editable Practice Printables for Each Unit
- Assessments that include: word dictation, sentence dictation & spelling error analysis
- EDITABLE templates for printables & assessments
- A Family Letter for Each Unit
- Teacher Assessment Guide
- Beginning of the Year Spelling Screener

This is my word study program in my class. It is an amazing resource. I use it weekly. I send the letters home. The parents appreciate knowing what’s going on. I am finding that my students are doing amazing on the skills and by the end of the week they know how to spell whatever word I give them that follows the skill.
