Spelling Test Paper

If you give weekly spelling tests to students in the primary grades then you might want to grab one or both of my first FREEBIES for January. Click HERE to download the 10 spelling words and up to 8 word wall words form or click HERE to grab the 20 spelling words form.

I use the spelling and word wall words template every Friday in my classroom to assess whether or not my first graders have grasped the spelling pattern for the week and have learned to spell their list of 10 words as well as their high-frequency words for that week. I score the two seperately but like to have them on one form. I left space for up to 8 word wall words as the number varies from 2 to 8 depending on the week's lesson.

To make it more fun for the children, I recently took the template and added a different seasonal graphic for each week of the year. Can you believe they actually look forward to the test each Friday -  just to find out what picture will show up on their test paper?

If this form works as well for you as it does for me - you may want to check out my 52 week Spelling and Word Wall Word Test Paper packet or my 52 week 20-words Spelling Test Paper Pack in my TPT Store.

Happy Holidays! Enjoy your time off!
