Somehow elementary school still used that lined brown paper that rips and has low contrast with student writing. Honestly, it makes. me. crazy. To avoid using that lined paper, I created a resource of lined paper that compliments any spelling program. Included are sheets for Spelling Pretests, Spelling Study Sheets, and Spelling Tests/Assessments.
The files are numbered for 12 spelling words, 2 review words, and 2 challenge words. If you have your students use a number, there are sheets with spaces to supply that information.
The spelling segment has 3 sections, a pretest for 12 words, a word study list, and a weekly assessment.
Using all that brown lined paper was making me nuts so I created these sheets for students to work with during the week.
Monday begins with a pretest on the 12 words. If students miss less than one word, they move on to a different list with more challenging words. The Pretest is sent home with our Weekly Reading Snapshot which covers all our words for the week and home study. You can read more about my Weekly Reading Snapshots here in this post.
After the Spelling Pretest, students copy their words on the Spelling Words Study Sheet to take home.
On Friday, we take our weekly assessment on the Spelling Test Sheet. No. More. Brown. Lined. Paper. If you want to check out this resource, you can find it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. How do you manage weekly spelling in your classroom, leave a comment below and let me know!
