list of fifth grade spelling words has many uses!
Parents, use this list to give your child an extra boost in spelling. Practice words that are easily confused (capital/capitol, desert/dessert) and words with the same spelling patterns (cause/pause). Together, find the tricky words used correctly in real-life situations. Talk about the words. Use them in everyday conversation. Write them on a home chalkboard, tablets or text them to one another!
Teachers, refer to this list when you're looking for words to use in your own worksheets, spelling games and other language activities. Remember these words will be about right for most students. For some, you will need to supplement with easier words from my fourth grade list. Or perhaps you'll need to add more challenging words from my sixth or seventh grade list. It's always up to you!
Students, get a jump on your learning by studying this word list. Be sure you know the meaning of each word you learn to spell.
