FAQs

Q: What are some good 7th grade spelling words? 

A: Here are a few of the words from our big list of 7th grade spelling words: abandon, achievement, biscuit, bizarre, bureau, campaign, capable, competent, descendant, fatigue, graffiti, grievance, heroic, inconvenient, irresistible, juvenile, mileage, miniature, nuisance, oases, oasis, panicked, paralysis, privilege, receipt, scarcity, solemn, souvenir, tournament, traitor, vigorously, wheeze.

Q: Of all these 7th grade spelling words, which are the most important for my students to master?

A: Students should first learn to spell the words they use the most. So for any group of students, those words will differ from person to person. It's challenging to customize a weekly spelling program for 25 students, for example. When selecting words, then, try to choose those that are most commonly used by the most students. Try to accommodate individual needs through "bonus" words in which extra credit is given for the correct spelling of extra-difficult words that are different for various students, according to their needs and vocabularies.

Q: Where can I find lists of difficult words, or additional vocabulary words, for this purpose?

A: You can be on the lookout for challenging words in students' literature, and subject area texts, such as their science, social studies and math textbooks. Also, list to words that students already use in their conversations. Do they use words that they may not know how to spell?

Additionally, on this website, I have a compilation of several lists of Difficult English Words, and Commonly Misspelled Words. You may also be interested in my list of 240 7th grade vocabulary words

Many of the words on this list of seventh grade spelling words will enable students to meet these ELA Writing standards :

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.7.3.D
