    Montessori phonetic language activity with fine-motor component: letter beads and pipe cleaners. I love this idea! Students can work on fine motor skills while still working on spelling. I would have this has a center in my classroom to have students work on their spelling words for the week.

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.

{What is the value of typing?} How important do you feel it is for your child to learn to be computer savvy? My girls begged for me to set up books so that they could practice typing words. It definitely was useful for spelling, word recognition, and playing with punctuation. Yet, I still wonder if the time would have better spent writing with a pencil & paper.
