Building Spelling Skills (Evan-Moor)

This spelling series is perfect for spelling practice but is also comprehensive enough to use as a spelling program. Little teacher prep is required and each spelling list should only take 15-30 minutes to complete. Each book has 30 weekly spelling units and each unit consists of a spelling list, sentences for dictation that include the spelling words, and four reproducible student practice pages. The number of spelling words per unit varies by grade level; Gr. 1 has 5-8 words per unit for a total of 198 words, Gr. 4 has 18 spelling words in each unit for a total of 540 words, etc. Word lists were compiled from lists of commonly used words, commonly misspelled words, words with common phonetic or structural elements, and words changed by adding affixes and forming compound words or contractions. The 30 word lists for Gr. 1 are composed of words that all have the same short vowel sound or similar word endings (like “ill” and “ow”) while the lists for Gr. 3 include words ending in “ing” and recognizing the “ur” sound in “heard” and “early.”

Students review the word lists in a variety of ways throughout the week. On Monday the words are introduced and students read, copy, and write the words. The Tuesday worksheet is composed of visual memory activities like using the words to fill in boxes and crossing out misspelled words. The Wednesday worksheet quizzes on word meaning and dictation; students fill in blanks in sentences using the spelling words and repeat and write down sentences read by the teacher. The Thursday worksheet is composed of word study activities like underlining words with a long “a” sound, filling in missing letters of words, matching rhyming words, etc. The Friday worksheet is the final test for the spelling list and there are blanks for students to write out each word and also lines to redo the dictation done on Wednesday. The variety and amount of activities are designed to enhance memorization. Teacher ideas, spelling strategies, record keeping forms, answer keys, completion certificates, dictation sentences for teachers and more are also included. 160 pages each, reproducible w/ perforated pages.
