Learning a set of spelling words is useless if students can understand, use and apply those words. This is why I teach vocabulary instead of spelling. Then within the vocabulary, I teach spelling patterns. This Long I Vocabulary Packet has four levels, each which teaches students to spell, use and apply their spelling patterns. Download all four levels for your classroom from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
