Spelling word practice. If we used a board like this, it would save us from having to photocopy those packets every week. We'd be able to do just a front & back page for vocab list and spelling list instead.(And plus, these activities are way more fun than the current ones we assign.)
rainbow writing (did something similar to this with the alphabet when one of my nanny charges were in kindergarten --- except they picked the color traced the letter 3 times, said the letter name and sound(s), repeated with at least 4 other colors), so I love this for learning spelling words. Could make writing them so much more fun and exciting.
Mystery Word sacks for Reading Stations. This is for a lower grade, but I thought this would be great for prefixes and suffixes with different roots. Have different labeled index cards inside for students to manipulate the parts of the word before writing it. Writing a definition based on the word parts would help mastery. pre + view = view before
toss, read and write! great way to interest kinesthetic learners. @Candace Smith Sauter @Wendy Leonard-Walker @Sarah Lowery
I pinned this the other day. This one works better. First they trace the sight word (we call them star words), then they take colored pencils and "rainbow write inside the word", and finally they cut out the individual letters and glue them in the box in the correct order.
