Spelling and that horrible lined brown paper…

journeys-spelling-sheets1We started a new reading curriculum this year, Journeys 2017 by HMH.  I have spent a lot of time organizing the different elements and creating documents and forms to use with the program and organize myself.  The spelling segment has 3 sections, a pretest, a word study list and a weekly assessment.  Using all that brown lined paper was making me nuts so I created these sheets.  There are 12 weekly words, 2 review words and 2 challenge words. Day 1 starts with a pretest which if the students pass, they move onto the advanced list which focuses on a more complex spelling rule.  After the Spelling Pretest, I post the spelling words on the whiteboard and have the students copy them down on the Spelling Words Study Sheet to take home. Then on Friday we take our weekly assessment on those words on the Spelling Test Sheet.  No. More. Brown. Lined. Paper. #happyteacher

I’ve just put these up over in my TPT store so head on over and check them out.  The set includes 9 sheets, one set with a place for a student number, and one set without and a set with review and challenge words and one without.  Let me know if they work for you in your classroom!  Bonnie
