Spelling on SchoolhouseTeachers.com is presented based on age and skill level. Preschool Spelling is presented to help students learn letter sounds and how they go together to make words. If your student is more advanced, they may want to memorize the spelling, but that is not required at this age. Worksheets are provided to make the lessons fun for younger students. Lower Elementary Spelling, List One is presented to help younger students learn to spell many basic words they will encounter in their beginning reading classes. Beginning with Lower Elementary List Two and continuing through high school, some vocabulary is taught, along with the spelling. Worksheets with a variety of activities and puzzles are presented to enable the student to work with the words and become familiar with them while learning to spell them. Please see the grade level tabs for more details.
When taken as part of a full language arts credit, each year of high school spelling is worth .25 high school credit if parents regularly test to ensure mastery.
