Included in this resource:
- a year-long master word list
- 30 weeks of assessments
- EDITABLE version to modify as needed
- blank template to print and use as needed
These assessments can be used with any balanced literacy program! There are 30 weeks of assessments included and a blank template (in case you would like to make an assessment for further review etc.).
Each assessment includes 3 parts to the test which will help you assess who has mastered the skills taught and can extend their learning. The first part is a dictation of the 14 list words. For words #15 and 16, I dictate 2 review words from the previous week (blue words). There are also 2 stars to dictate “challenge or surprise” words (red words) that follow the spelling pattern you have taught during your phonics accuracy lessons. In the second part students will circle 3 mistakes and correctly write the sentence. (I always read aloud the sentence). Last, the students read independently the bottom sentence and draw a picture to show comprehension. 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 this test is also an opportunity for students to practice neat penmanship. ☺
