The North Allegheny School District uses the spelling series which accompanies the Harcourt Storytown reading series. The weekly word list is below. Each list contains 2 “review” words and 2 “sight” words. Additionally, the District has provided “extension words” (beginning with week 7) to enrich lessons, extend learning and challenge our students. We encourage our students to learn the entire list.
