About SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists

Skills & Content

SPELL-Links is a multi-linguistic approach. Pattern-focused grade-level word lists support multi-linguistic instruction for simultaneous development of phonological (sound), orthographic (letter), and semantic/morphological (meaning) skills. 

Embedded pattern-loaded sentence writing and reading practice support students’ application of word study skills beyond the word level and enhance syntax, word use, reading comprehension, and expression of ideas.

Each list is comprised of high frequency words. Earlier grades feature vocabulary Tier 1 and Tier 2 words; later grades feature vocabulary Tier 2 and Tier 3 words.

When used together with SPELL-Links Wordtivities, SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists provides a complete spelling/word study curriculum that will motivate and engage your students while helping them to succeed in spelling, reading, and writing.

Organization of Word Lists

SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists equips you with a compre­hensive set of pattern-focused word lists to facilitate student learning during whole class, small group, and 1:1 word study instruction.

Each of the carefully constructed grade-level word lists supports the simultaneous development of pattern-specific phonological (sound), orthographic (letter), and semantic/morphological (meaning) skills. SPELL-Links Wordtivities’ multi-linguistic instruction simultaneously engages processes and systems of spelling, reading, speaking, and listening in a dynamic inter­play, building a robust neural network for literacy and language.

SPELL-Links Wordtivites Word Lists is designed to be used together with SPELL-Links Wordtivities, but can be used with any multi-linguistic word study curriculum.

"To me, the appeal of SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists is rather multifaceted. It continues to be very difficult to find an evidence-based group instruction curriculum, and SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists fit the bill. Because SPELL-Links Wordtivities Word Lists focus on skills integration of spelling, reading, speaking, and listening, it allows the students to engage in contextually based opportunities to become better listeners, speakers, readers, spellers and writers."
