This resource gives your students fun and engaging opportunities to play with words and develop strong foundational skills. There are 30 weeks included in this unit, and each week focuses on a different spelling pattern. The activities have students sorting words, finding the word that doesn’t belong, and solving riddles. Use during whole class lessons, small group instruction, with individual students, or as independent center activities. Digital Google Slides format.
Check out the Scope and Sequence in the preview file for spelling patterns included. The spelling patterns and words align to the Benchmark Advance curriculum (CA + National Editions), but can be used in any classroom. If you are a Benchmark Advance 2021 Edition user, the spelling patterns will be the same, while the word lists will be slightly different (hey, it can just be some extra practice!)
