Spelling Practice - This is such a great idea from A Cupcake for the Teacher. It's a word work activity that can be used to practice writing sight words or spelling words. It's called rainbow roll-n-write and it's a FREEBIE!
Spelling Tic-Tac-Toe One of the graders in the class I intern for showed me that they were doing this and told me how much fun it was! I'm not sure if this was the exact spelling tic-tac-toe they were doing, but I really like this idea
An engaging, hands-on word work activity! Students "make words" by cutting apart and rearranging letters. this could be great with my older kids. although might still be a little hard to grasp for even them
Scrabble Recording Sheet With Tiles- Daily 5 Word Work; I'll use this as a warm-up! I could also put actual tiles on the elmo projector or on each table. It would move a lot faster than a full game, and would encourage participation.
