Thank you! I am reviewing the document now as I feel I have made an error in the student word rings. Please be on the lookout for the updated file and feel free to email me with any issues that may arise. I use this unit and love it as well. Thank you for your meaningful and honest feedback!
I like the little lists so they can be stamped when the students learn the words.

Thanks again Randi! I was originally looking for your word wall words that are cut out like the shape of the lettering (following tall letters/short letters) I hope that is clear. But this is a very thorough unit!!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hi, I just purchased your word study unit. I was wondering if you had something that includes work center activities that you do with your students to help them learn these words. One of my friends gave me a spelling home work packet by scholastic, however the word lists are a little different from yours. Things that were included were abc order, writing 3 times each, word boxes and sentences. I didnt know if you had something that you do in the classroom with them. I would appreciate any advice you have...thanks!
I do a lot of word work activities in class and in my small groups. There are times when I do activities that include word work but I don't generally customize them to a specific week's word list. I just try to make sure they are your basic sight words that would be expected for that grade level. TSo my ABC order pages would be words that are sight words and possible 1 or 2 of the words that are on the page would be words from that week. A typical week for the specific words of the week would look like this.
Each day we read the words, write them either on paper, dry erase boards or type them. We also clap the words, chant the words, and use them in a sentence.
Monday: Learn the new words and write them up to 5x each.
Tuesday: Word Art (a page without words where students write the words with a pencil in column one, write them with a crayon in column 2 and underline vowels in column 3 after writing the words). I have many variations of this page. I will look for a link to give proper credit.
Wednesday: Focus on word families/words inside of words. If the word of the week is -in we would complete that word family. On weeks we don't have a word that has a word family we just pick one to focus on.
Thursday: Write the words. Use them in sentences or other flashcard game like around the world.
Friday: Word Wall Test - this is not a typical spelling test...
1. Write the word call (the word for the week was "all")
2. Write any word that rymes with "me" and helps you spell that word (possible answers he, she, we, be)
Students are graded on their ability to apply the skill not just memorize the word.
I hope this was helpful. I will add it to my goals to make/post some additional word work activities.

Your product is listed as being for Dolch, but in the samples you refer to using FRY words. Did you use the Fry or Dolch list?
I have 2 units posted. One uses FRY words and one uses DOLCH words. The pictures I posted from both units are the same pictures. The pictures are all from the FRY unit however, the words you see in most of the pictures can be found on both lists. Just make sure if you purchase that the title of the unit says Dolch or Fry. Thanks for looking!
