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. Mondays are our pretest. Then students are put either on one of two lists. Then, during the week we work on our spelling words in small groups, literacy centers, and small groups.
Finally, on Friday we have our assessment which is a recorded grade.
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.
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.
I use these Spelling Test Sheets every week. 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?
