K12 created a free Spelling Curriculum for grades K-5 and for High School. The free lessons cover academic subjects taught at particular grade levels (for example, the 5th grade spelling list includes 5th grade science words). The lists also include Fry’s 1,000 most commonly used English words.
The 1st-5th Elementary Spelling Curriculum includes:
- weekly spelling lists
- printable worksheets
- dictation sentences
The material for each grade spans a full school year, 36 weeks. The lists cover academic vocabulary words that a child may be learning at his or her grade level.
The High School Spelling Curriculum is a 36-week program
A lot of research was put into developing this curriculum. The high school spelling lists include the most commonly misspelled words. This curriculum is especially for 9th-12th grade students, but you may find it also useful for middle schoolers (and yourself!).
How to access the Free Spelling Curriculum:
