This was created in direct response to getting frustrated with my 3rd graders. I needed something to give them direction when studying their spelling words at night. This year, my twin boys were in 3rd grade so I had MUCH frustration in getting them to sit down to study their words each night.
I did not create this FOR them, but IN RESPONSE to how they were studying for their spelling tests each night/week. I wanted something kids (and parents) could easily grab, but didn’t take forever to do and focused on them LOOKING at the parts of the words and not just memorizing the words each week. In other words, WHAT LETTERS ACTUALLY MAKE THOSE SOUNDS!
