the title above is the link to my test for Essential Word List 1. It tests 8 of the 10 words from List 1. If your child gets 100%, then they can take the test for book 2.
List 1 matches year 0 - 1 at primary school, of course depending on your child.
Also, if you have purchased NZ Essential School Series Word List 1 book, you will find the answers here.
