Word Study Program

My grade level this year has worked with a word study program instead of spelling. The idea being that our state testing tests more on vocabulary and word parts. I have developed the weekly lists and morning activity sheets to go with it. I have also created vocabulary cards and definition cards to use for a memory game. I have more than 36 lessons developed. I know it is too late for this school year--it was being created.

However, I am going to begin putting together Lesson packages that will be available for next school year. The lists cover synonyms, antonyms, homographs, homophones, prefixes, suffixes, math terms, compound words, proper nouns, etc. 

I'd really like to know if there is any interest out there for such a program. I feel like it's been beneficial for our kids. I'm posting a sample of a lesson sheet below for you to see. Hope to hear what you think. Please follow my blog to catch all of the goodies.


  1. It amazes me what we work on in all grade levels. I will mention this to my other grade level colleagues to see what they think.
