Spelling Worksheets for Older Students

This new section has been added in response to a very familiar question, "Why are my older students such poor spellers?"

Several friends have asked for some resources to use with children who are beyond phonics but are still spelling poorly.

I will regularly add word lists and suggested activities to reinforce spelling rules and tricks. Many of the lists will have a theme such as spelling challenge words, subject related words, and everyday words.

Here is the first one:
