Teaching Tips

Helpful Hints with the Fourth Grade Spelling Lists

  • Each lesson has 15 words, with space for five more words individualized to the student. These five words might include:
    • Words misspelled in previous lessons
    • Words misspelled in the students creative writing
    • Words from science or other unit studies

  • Some lessons have themes for the entire lesson. In this case, the theme is colors. In the examples above, there are themes of colors, animals and numbers. Each level has a theme for the entire year with a few words each week in that theme.

  • Words are sometimes presented with prefixes or suffixes to assist students in spelling common patterns. For instance: person, personal, and personalize in lesson 25 above.

Word Themes

The theme for Level Four is the states and capitals for the USA. One or two states and their capital are listed at the beginning of each lesson. A painless way to include US geography at the same time!
