Words Their Way Spelling Lists (Emergent- Early Letter Name)
No-prep spelling lists for your students! Organized and created based on all 42 sorts with Fry Words incorporated!
Sorts 1-15 focus on 10 words while students understand the routine and expectations at the beginning of the year! Sorts 16-42 ask students to show they know 15 words. There are words that repeat to assure that they are still recognizing their words! There are 5 Fry Words incorporated into each list. These lists are challenging but my students practice with their words twice a day (in class and for nightly homework) before they test on Fridays and have shown they can rise to the occasion and did really well!
I use the following WTW routine in my 2nd grade classroom:
Monday- open sort (students decide how to sort)
Tuesday- closed sort (students use the given chart)
Wednesday- Time sort (2 rounds timed)
Thursday- Blind sort (students play teacher and “test” their partner)
Friday- Glue and test
