Do your students moan and groan when they are assigned homework? YoCandyCat has created a fun and engaging spelling and vocabulary homework! This homework is based on student choice in a tic-tac-toe format. The activities require students to submit a written response which is creative and fun!
Each sheet is differentiated based on the Wonders series levels: Approaching, On Level and Beyond. This bundle also contains the entire spelling and vocabulary lists from Unit 5. For example, a=Approaching, o=On Level and b=Beyond. U5W4a Currently, I am an inclusion teacher and I have learned that differentiation is key for student success! If you only wish to use one level or even 2, just print out what you need...it is already done for you!
Each sheet features 8 Wonders based vocabulary words. I have also included the definitions. After introducing the vocabulary words in my student's spelling, their scores rose immediately!
Common Core Standards emphasis writing in all areas and this homework is no exception. Students are asked to submit a fun written response...they won't even realize they are practicing their writing skills! I have also included the Common Core standard on the homework sheets below each applicable activity.
Along with the Wonders 15 spelling words, I have also added 5 math words. After noticing that students struggled at spelling and writing number words, I decided to include them with each homework sheet. I begin with zero and continue adding number words throughout the year. For example, twenty-four twenty-five etc.
I have posted the entire Wonders series for the 3rd grade in a bundle. Check it out! I hope you choose to use this great resource! Who says learning can't be fun!
Enjoy and have a "purrfect" day!--YoCandyCat
