YR 5 Spelling

Discussion in 'Primary' started by imla, Apr 10, 2012.

  1. Hi, I am in real need of some help for spelling.
    I am in Year 5 and introducing teaching spelling patterns and doing weekly spelling tests and I was hoping someone out there might be able to help. Do any of you have lists of spelling words, different spelling patterns which I can use? I'm thinking of things like a week on looking at turning f to v when looking at plural words, e.g knife - knives, scarf - scarves.
    I would very much appreciate it!

    I have these lists in resources:
    https://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/SPELLING-LISTS-Year-5-Summer-Term-6076707/
    but I have just spent a lot of time revising these and have now produced autumn, spring and revised summer lists. I was going to upload them into Resources as soon as I get a chance, but if you PM me your email I can send them on to you.
    They are matched to the Support for Spelling 2 and Spelling Bank objectives.

     
  3. That would be wonderful! Thanks so very much!
     
  4. I'll try to paste in my explanation of irregular plurals.

  5. The listing has ended up messed up because I took a whole page from one of my books.
    I'll try again with separate paras.
    <font face="Times New Roman">Plurals of Nouns</font> , ).

  6. Not much better, but I hope u can copy and paste it into Word and see it better that way.
    For the main English spelling patterns and exceptions, see:

    For common words with the main patterns:<font size="3"> [/URL]

    For words with variant spellings: [/URL] words

     
  7. I have some resources on Doubling Rules that I could send you. I also have Picture Posters for tricky words that children can look at and try to use the methods for words that they need to learn.
