Word List Generator 

The Word List Generator Project has created a database of 2084 words that elementary school teachers can use to help students practice and build sounding out and word-form recognition skills. Learn more about the project and how you can help.

To generate a word list matching your students' instructional level, select parameters below--eg, to generate a list of CVC words beginning with continuous sounds, check the CVC checkbox and select "are continuous only" from the Initial sounds drop-down menu.
Word length:
Number of syllables:
Regularity: (Regular means: can be decoded by a student who knows the most common sounds of letters a-z and A-Z. Regularish means: can be decoded by a student who knows the most common sounds of letters a-z and A-Z and common letter combinations such as sh, th, ea, ar, oo, etc. So cat is regular, moon is regularish, and eye is irregular.)
Matching:
 
(Use _ to represent a single character, so _a_ would find all three-letter words with a as the middle letter. Use % to represent any number of characters, so %a% would find all words of any length with an a in them. Note that _ and % can be mixed so __a% will find all words that have an a as the third character.)
CVC form: for Regular words of less than three syllables only
Initial Sounds: for Regular words of less than three syllables only, will not affect other search results
Dolch Words:
