There are NO excuses for incorrectly spelling color words in my classroom. ;) For years I had the color words beautifully posted on my word wall and for years, my students ignored them and continued to spell them incorrectly. (Even after many mini-lessons on using the word wall). I decided I needed to try something new and now my students have their own personal word walls on their Writer's Workshop Folder. This has really helped! It is so easy for them to use because it is right on their desk, in front of their face...no excuses!
