K12Reader offers parents and teachers free spelling curriculum for 1st through 5th grade. This teacher-developed curriculum can help students develop strong spelling and word recognition skills, and reinforces strong reading development. A comprehensive spelling program extends past the simple memorization of the letters that make up the individual words. Weekly word lists given for the purpose of improving each student’s spelling also provide an ideal opportunity to ensure that all students are being exposed to words that will reinforce their overall success in literacy. The 1st – 5th grade program includes:
- All 1,000 FRY sight words and Dolch sight words
- Grade level appropriate patterns for words, focusing on word families, prefixes/suffixes, and word roots/origins.
- A selection of academic vocabulary based on the science, social studies, mathematics, and language arts curriculum/standards for each specific grade level.
- Dictation sentences to remind students that the spelling words do not occur in isolation.
