This free Christian based home school spelling curriculum is based on the Dolch and Fry (sight word) spelling word lists. The Fry list is the 1,000 most used sight words that students need to develop in their vocabulary. The first three hundred words in that list make up more than half of all the written material contained in newspaper articles, magazines, text books, children’s books, stories, novels, and other written materials.

Free Christian Home School Spelling Curriculum

 

This free Christian based home school spelling curriculum is based on the Dolch and Fry (sight word) spelling word lists.  The Fry list is the 1,000 most used sight words that students need to develop in their vocabulary. The first three hundred words in that list make up more than half of all the written material contained in newspaper articles, magazines, text books, children’s books, stories, novels, and other written materials.  I have arranged the spelling lists with a two hundred word count, which can be divided into groups of 10 to 20 words for about 10 to 20 weeks of work.  I have added other words as well, including religious ones, to help round out the vocabulary.  For preschoolers and kindergarteners, I recommend that you introduce the words about 10 at a time. First and second graders can probably handle 15-20 at a time, depending on their age and ability.  Third and fourth graders should be able to handle 20 to 25 words at a time with no problem.  If your child doesn’t know what a word means, let them look it up in a dictionary for vocabulary words.  I recommend that your child write the words 5 times each to begin with.  First graders and up should be able to put each word in a sentence, after that. Next a practice test should be given.  Finally, any words missed in the practice test should be written an additional five times.  The final spelling test should include both the correct words and the misspelled words from the practice test.  You can carry over any misspelled words from the final test to the next test.  Happy homeschooling!

About these ads

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderful children and five grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
