FIRST GRADE SPELLING WORDS: 1st grade spelling list


The First Grade Spelling Words are an excerpt from my Eclectic Speller. The list is an edited version of the (Project Gutenberg) most common written English words from a 2005 analysis.

1st Grade Spelling Reading Vocabulary Words

Mastering the 2000 most written words is imperative, students mastering the vocabulary will comprehend 90-95% of daily speech and 80-85% of school texts.

The list does not include the complete Academic Words by content area.
