This area will soon be full with full spelling lists and quizzes for each grade level. We are working with a team of curriculum developers to focus on the 400 most common words for each grade level. Spelling is much more than just making sure a few letters are strung together in the correct order. Spelling is understanding basic mechanics and patterns in words of the English language. There are some basic rules that we learn in elementary school. The most common rule is "I before E, except after C, unless it sounds like A. Does that ring a bell? There are thought to be just over a dozen general rules that give students the lay of the land. These worksheets will cover the spelling of common word lists for a wide array of grade levels.
