Word lists - for word-building, reading and spelling

When teaching phonics, it is useful to have word lists at hand so that you don’t have to think up words as you are teaching. Use these word lists to help with your phonics lessons. Each list has a specific phonic focus. Choose from these lists according to the progression of your programme. Use them for word-building, spelling and dictation activities. You can also use them for making reading and spelling games for your pupils.
