Make Your Own

If making your own lists, keep in ind that this is a good place to include words that are hard to depict with objects or pictures. (and, at, did, fun, had, him, in, it, let, not, on, up, etc.)

  • Printable Word Lists (There are three lists per page. Cut apart on the lines.):
    In the Pink, Blue, Green Reading Series, the first list would be considered pink level words, the other three would be considered blue level words.
    In the Muriel Dwyer Reading Scheme, these would all be grouped together.
