Practice weekly spelling words to strengthen letter-sound recognition, alphabetization, and sentence writing skills with 36 weeks of worksheets.
Add Weekly Spelling Words to Your Daily English Lessons!
Reading and writing skills start with letter-sound recognition.
But after that…
Reading fluency is the result of a lot of repetition and memorization.
Each weekly worksheet in this resource introduces a common spelling pattern through a bank of ten new words. Each weekly word bank focuses on a frequent spelling pattern, like short and long vowel sounds, digraphs, trigraphs, and blends. Students will practice spelling the words a different way each day:
Monday: students write the words in the bank to practice spelling and handwriting.
Tuesday: students repeat the spelling exercise before but write the words twice.
Wednesday: students alphabetize the word list.
Thursday: students write each word in a sentence.
By completing each weekly worksheet, students demonstrate they can correctly spell grade-appropriate words and identify common spelling patterns.

Scaffolding + Extension Tips
In addition to individual student work time, use this set of 36 spelling worksheets for a:
- Reading center activity
- ELA lesson warm-up
- Fast Finisher activity
- Homework assignment
- Writing center activity
Students who need more of a challenge can list 2-3 additional words that use the spelling pattern in their word bank and complete the day’s activity with the new words.
Support struggling students by limiting the number of words in the word bank. Add new words each day and have students do the previous day’s activity to catch up.
