Included first in the Spelling Contract download is the Spelling Contract itself which explains to the student his or her spelling activity choices for the week. Note: This contract is set up to take spelling tests on Thursdays to ease the load of tests on Fridays. Students receive the pages as a small packet and can make their spelling activity choices all on Monday, or each day at the beginning of their spelling time. Also included are the pages for the students to complete each Spelling Contract activity listed. Activities in this Spelling Contract are: "Alphabetical Spelling," "Rainbow Spelling," and "Spelling Pictures." Directions are included for each activity. Teaching goal for using this Spelling Contract is to create an independent learning time for the larger portion of the class, while the teacher works with individuals or small groups during the Reading/Language Arts block.
