Core Word Lists

I have provided three word lists on this page:

bullet

2nd grade word list:  All 2nd graders should be able to read and spell words on this list by the end of 2nd grade.  (Which means that all entering 3rd graders should have mastery of them.)

bullet

3rd grade word list:  All 3rd graders should be able to read and spell words on this list by the end of 3rd grade.  These are the words we will be focusing on this year.

bullet

4th grade word list:  If your child has demonstrated the ability to read and spell all of the words on the 3rd grade list already, challenge them to begin studying words on the 4th grade list. 

While I have provided just these three here, there are word lists available for grades 1-6.  If you would like the list for another grade level, let me know and I can send home a copy of that list with your child.
