Spelling Instruction throughout the Year! - Simply Skilled in Second

Spelling Instruction throughout the Year!

Hi Friends.. I hope this post finds you well.  I am nearing the end of my summer vacation and I am sure that some of you are already back to the grind!  This summer I was on a QUEST to revamp my spelling instruction.  I wanted a little bit more variety in the activities my students were completing and I wanted it to be a bit more interactive.  

So I decided to CREATE something that my kiddos would enjoy and not get bored of.

So.... I created..


spelling activities for any words

My new Spelling Tab-Its will be placed in their Interactive Notebooks when they are completed each week.  On Monday mornings, my students copy down their new spelling words for the week. They usually copy them in their spelling notebook.  But this year, they will copy them down on the first page of the Tab-Its booklet which will be sent home for homework.  Each night they will be required to complete a different activity to work on using their spelling words.  There are 5 or 6 different activities for each day of the week so the combinations are endless.  Actually.. when I created this, I wanted to to figure out how many actual combinations I could do.  So I recruited the help of some of my upper grade blogging buddies to help me out (LOL.. I teach 2nd grade because upper grade math scares me a bit :) and they told me that there were 650 possible combinations of pages!!  How cool is that!

spelling for any words


Each week I will choose the pages that my students will work on during the week.  On Friday, there is a page for a Practice Test or the ACTUAL spelling test.  I am going to try out both for now and see which one I like better :)
