Differentiated Year-Long Spelling and Word Work

In my district, we do not have a basal or a phonics program (pause for the angels to descend upon us in a beam of glowing light). While I love not having to plan my instruction around one, I know that there are many teachers in my position that wish they had some sort of guide or scope and sequence to help them plan their instruction.


It's here. It's differentiated. It's low-prep. And it has you covered for the whole year! (Click on any of the pictures to hop over to my store).

You get 30 weeks of spelling instruction.  Each week focuses on a different skill and has two different lists (the standard "A List" and a more challenging "B List").

Each week also comes with a say and sort page. Have students glue the pieces down or have them keep the pieces to complete other kinds of sorts throughout the week.

Needing additional practice? With this product, students also have the opportunity to practice spelling with word configuration boxes. Alongside the spelling practice, students can also build their reading skills by filling in a sentence with the correct spelling word. These two types of printables come with every list, every week.

But the fun doesn't stop there! Also included in this product is my Word Work Activities for Any List! Yours for free! So many practice opportunities! Here is a brief preview:

This product also includes 20 task cards and a rubric :)

I wanted to give you and your students plenty of options when it comes to spelling instruction. If you are interested in seeing more, the preview file in my TPT store gives you one week free to try out. 


  1. Great! Thank you for sharing this! Such activities and are indeed fun and useful. Learning how to write literally from your young age is very important. First of all, students would later need to make large writing assignments and they do often make a lot of mistakes there. If you do really need some writing support, you may actually apply to essay help for UK students . This is one of the most effective and convenient ways to be on the top of your classes and be involved in extracurriculars and your job, if you have one.

  2. An interesting article and an approach to solving this topic. Personally, I always had problems with writing any text, I even remember that at the university I preferred to pay for research paper and do not spend on it my efforts.
