Pat Cunningham's Spelling lists--HELP!!

On page 91 of "Launching the Writing Workshop" (grades 3-5), it says:

"Pat Cunningham has provided a recommended list of high-frequency words that she suggest teaching at each elementary grade level...It's worth obtaining her list of high-frequency words that she believes are appropriate for each grade level and determining which grade-level list is aligned to most of your children."

I have googled Pat Cunningham and got information about the Four Blocks, but can't find any spelling lists. Is there some book I need to buy or is this information available somewhere on the web? (I hope, I hope...I really don't want to buy yet another literacy book just now--I think I've purchased a dozen within the last three months!!!)

I have a book by Pat Cunningham called Month by Month Phonics for First Grade and it has a list of high-frequency/wordwall words first graders need to learn. I know that Cunningham has a Phonics book for each grade. So, I'm guessing that if you check the book for your grade, then you could find the list of words you need (maybe another teacher has this book for your grade and could type up the list for you and post it here)

Thanks, Meredith. It will be great if someone is able to do that or guide me to a site that has them listed. I actually would like the words for grades 1-4 since I'd like to make sure my third and fourth graders can spell all the words up to their grade. Thanks!

I could type up the words for grades 1 and 2...but I don't have the books for grades 3 or 4. Give me a few days to find my books and type it up and then I'll post them.

That would be great if you can make the time to do that! (I realize teachers have NO extra time!!!)

I would love the 4th grade words too.....it is amazing that this question is here ..with the answers. I am just sitting on my patio reading my Writer's Workshop book and I came to the computer for the exact same info the initial poster asked for!

I am new to the Writer's Workshop in the last month. I have been teaching 4th grade writing for a number of years in Florida for the FCAT but now I have to change to this program. We are practicing for next year so it might seem a bit strange to be "launching" it at this late stage of the year!

I have read with interest the other threads on this board about the Lucy Calkins program...I have started it with a lot of trepidation. I don't like it very much. As I don't have any choice about teaching it I had just better get on with it and find out how to do it as best as I can.

If there are any other 4th grade teachers doing this and they have some helpful advice I would love to hear it especially if they have used it for FCAT in Florida.

thanks

Hey! I am also a 4th grade teacher in Florida and I am trying out Writer's Workshop this year. I can't begin to tell you how nervous I am. I'm wondering...how did it go for you? Do you have any advice? I would appreciate anything and everything you could tell me.

I love teaching writer's workshop! I've been using the method for twelve years now. My main piece of advice is to make sure the kids understand WHY we spend 45 minutes each day writing. Help them to value it as important to them. That's essential. The other advice I have is, be sure to keep your mini-lessons mini...about ten minutes in fourth grade, no more. Try to keep conferences quick, too...about five minutes per child.

I've taught WW in K-3rd grade and I love the enthusiasm my kids have for telling their own stories. They naturally want to share about their lives, so this gives them a focused way to do that.

One final word of wisdom (this one took me while to figure out) is that you still need to teach grammar and spelling at another time in the day, with some other program or methods. WW is great for building craft as a writer, but it is not a good program for teaching conventions. Kids just need a lot of practice with conventions. Then, whatever you've taught during your word work time, you can remind them to do it as they write in WW.

Have fun!
