About These Grade 6 Spelling Words

There are 36 weeks of words, 16 words per week.

Of the 576 words, 96 of them are Fry words, and only 1 of them is a Dolch word.

By the end of 6th grade (having previously completed the spelling lists of grade 1 thru 5), your child will have learned the spellings of almost all 1000 Fry words and nearly all of the Dolch words, plus of course many other words.

Secular Spelling Lists

I say “nearly” and “almost” because these spelling lists are completely secular. So any words that were in any way religious were not used in these spelling lists.

Since everyone has different religious beliefs, please feel free to add whichever religious words are important to your student. The Fry words that were not included in these themed elementary spelling lists are: “God” and “church”. The Dolch nouns that were not used are “Christmas” and “Santa Claus”.

The themed lists of grade 6 spelling words can be downloaded free below.
