Big Spellings spelling lists   elementary school
These are differentiated spelling lists for a first or middle school, and there is a file here which explains exactly how it could work in your school. It means each child has exactly the right spelling list for them regardless of age. This was a very popular resource with over 100 ratings and 5 stars. Lots of schools have adopted it and I've had very positive feedback from teachers, but took me all summer to make and so I thought I'd start to charge for it. It encourages independence as the children test each other at the end of the week. There are enough spelling lists on one A4 sheet to last a term. The lists start with cvc words and phonic sounds, progressing to very challenging words. They also contain all the High Frequency Words. There are free assessment sheets in another resource to work out which sheet each child starts at. Also hold Spelling Bees! (see my free resources for this!)
