First Grade Glitter and Giggles: Daily 5 Work on Words.Freebie too! LOVE the idea of students working from the words on their own word rings. They each have their own, but it's on their bag to take home daily.
New spin on Rainbow Words: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!
Word boxes: If a student doesn't know how to spell a word, they check the box. If it's not there, they bring the card to me, we spell it together, and then the card goes in the box. Promotes independent writers and more active than a dictionary
