This second grade spelling pack contains 37 editable, Common Core aligned spelling lists complete with a parent note. Just click and type to make any desired changes. Then, they are ready to print and send right home with your students!
Each list is made up of a total of fourteen words. Twelve words follow the phonics pattern to be focused on that week. Ten are regular words, and two are challenge words, which I assign for bonus points. The other two words are sight words.
I have ordered the lists as I use them in my own classroom; however, they are not numbered. You may print and use them in any order you wish.
Words on each list are written from least to most challenging. You can easily shorten the list for students who need accommodations. (I simply tape a white piece of paper over the last few regular words before placing the list on the copier.)
I have also included a blank list template so you can create your own lists as necessary.
Please check the preview images for a complete table of contents and sample lists!
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
