First grade is a time for students to grow their vocabulary. Students begin to move beyond sight words for the first time spelling more complex words. By the end of first grade, your child can write and describe school, home, and the environment. You will be amazed at how much your child can spell!
Our first-grade spelling word lists are meant to help your student as they begin to read more fluently. In first grade, each of our lists include common words that appear frequently in Level 1 books and reading proficiency tests.
