1st Grade Spelling Assessments and Word Lists EDITABLE
Here is everything you need to get a successful spelling program running in your classroom TODAY! Included are weekly spelling word lists, word sorting cards, and spelling tests. For over 10 years, I have used this complete spelling program for grade 1 but it could easily be used to enrich Kindergarten students or as an intervention with 2nd graders.
a year-long master word list and 33 weeks of:
- spelling word lists 3 options: trace and write, word shapes, and half sheet trace & write
- pocket chart or sorting word cards
- weekly assessments
- EDITABLE versions or the assessments, spelling lists, and word cards
- blank templates to use as needed for further review
These assessments and lists can be used with any balanced literacy program! Students will study a phonetic spelling pattern and learn two new high frequency words per week. The lists can be used after introducing the new phonics skill as reinforcement and as a good way for students to communicate with parents about their weekly spelling skills. These lists would also be a great way to reinforce accuracy mini lessons as part of word work centers.
There are 3 parts to the test which will help you assess who has mastered the skills taught and can extend their learning. Students will write dictated words, correct spelling mistakes, and read spelling words in context and illustrate. The last 2 parts of the assessment show if students’ can transfer their knowledge of the spelling skill you have taught into a new situation. Using the dotted lines is also an opportunity for students to practice penmanship.
