( I know..I cringe at that word.)
Making sure each word is “perfect”.
Students who STOP writing a wonderful story,
because they can’t remember HOW to spell a word.
Just one word.
And then..they stop writing! UGH!
They ask themselves,
“What does it start with?”
Oh..I dunno…so where do they look?
What do they do?
ASK THE TEACHER!
Those DREADED words…
“HOW DO YOU SPELL…????”
We have gone over letter sounds, word families, vocabulary, picture prompts, word walls, word lists, dictionaries, pictionaries, and so on..and so on.
And still they ask.
So what is a teacher to do??
( The place where ALL questions CAN be answered!)
And so I search…
SO MANY CHOICES!
( And don’t EVEN get me started on WORD WORK!)
And so…what’s a teacher to do?
Create MY OWN!
My district has adopted a curriculum.
I have 18 boxes waiting for me to unpack!
My PD for this new curriculum is 5 days before I have students!
I probably won’t have time to REALLY dig into the program.
Surface teaching for a few weeks!
My kiddos are ready… BEFORE I AM!
Here are a few of my newest
( I do have access to the word lists…so I am using them!)
If you do not have
DO NOT FRET!
The word lists in this program can be used anywhere, anytime!
Homeschools, interventions, homework, practice pages!
All of the lists are printed in black and white.
SAVES ON COLORED INK!
( I print mine on colored paper!)
I print one copy for the student’s desk.
A little tape on top..and voila!
Instant word wall for writing!
(NO MORE …HOW DO YOU SPELL…)
The other copy I send home for homework each MONDAY!
They have to read & practice each night.
Spelling tests on FRIDAY!
I give “rewards” for 80% correct or higher!
I don’t expect perfection…just effort in their work.
I add these word lists to SPELLING CITY on our ipads.
(If you don’t have SPELLING CITY for ipads…GET IT!) 🙂
They practice EVERY DAY!
They also must use the week’s spelling words in their journals.
They read their journals to a partner.
Spelling, reading, writing, word lists, & homework!
I think we’ve got this!
I hope you can use my new SPELLING Packets!
GOOD FOR ALL LEARNERS!
