Free Spelling List And Spelling Test Printables

My second grader is a pretty good reader, and because of that it’s hard to find a grade level spelling curriculum that includes words she doesn’t know how to spell. I really liked some of the spelling curriculum books out there, but the word lists were never quite right for her.

I prefer to have some sort of a plan if not curriculum for each subject. I found myself skipping spelling because it just wasn’t challenging enough for my daughter. So I figured I could make up my own word list and spelling test worksheets and use them, choosing my own words I wanted her to practice.

Luckily, my daughter has started a diary that she writes in every day. I read through what she’s written so far and picked the first 10 words she’s spelled wrong. And that’s what’s on her spelling test this week! That feels like a mom win 🙂

And just in case these happen to help you out too, here they are as a free download.

P.S. Would you like a version of this with a smaller list? Maybe just 5 words? Let me know in the comments and I’ll make one!



Please help me grow my blog, and share this printable!

    Could you make a larger list? My son has 15 word lists and this would be perfect for him.
