Master Words and Spell Success
There is a noticeable connection between strong spelling skills and success in reading and writing. When first grade students have a firm grasp on letters and their corresponding sounds, they can decode words in print and write with more ease, as they do not have to stop and determine the correct spelling of words.
The worksheets in this vast collection provide all the practice kids need to become proficient spellers. Just some of the many topics include beginning blends, consonant clusters, word endings, sight words, rhyming words, and word families. Activities such as mazes, crossword puzzles, word ladders, and more will keep kids engaged in practicing their spelling skills. The inclusion of holiday themes allows for spelling practice to be incorporated throughout the year. Additional resources, including guided lessons, support many of these worksheets.
Try these worksheets for whole-class, partner, or individual work. In no time at all, your first grader will be ready to be crowned the next spelling bee champion.
