The Middle Column
The words in the third grade spelling lists below are the middle column in the three column method. The first column lists the words syllable by syllable phonetically. The third column lists the correct spelling and the number of letters per syllable. This method fosters independence in practicing the spelling. It also provides immediate feedback regarding errors made, as well as reinforces the student for each syllable spelled correctly.
Helpful Hint: 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.
Helpful hint: Point out the different patterns as they are encountered in the lessons. In this case "ow" at the end of a word, and single and double consonants before "ing" is added at the end.
Helpful Hint: To save time and effort in making the Student Spelling Pages, you may purchase Syllable Savvy Spelling. The 30 lessons pre-written are available as an e-book ($4.95) or paper. ($5.95)
Helpful Hint: Each grade level has a different theme. The theme for the third grade spelling lists is "Common Household Words."
Helpful Hint: Save the Student Spelling Work pages. When a word with a similar pattern or rule is encountered, show the student they already know it. Learning is enhanced when it is tied to previous experience.
