All the spelling activities you need for an entire school year! In this packet, there are 10 choice boards (one for each month of the school year), and each choice board has 9 activities from which the students choose to learn their spelling words. The choice boards are divided into columns, with each column increasing in difficulty and level of thinking. Column A helps students learn how to spell each of their words. Column B teaches definitions, and Column C utilizes each word in a real-world task that incorporates content from Reading and Writing.
The choice boards make differentiation easy--students select activities that meet their needs and interests. The amount of activities to do be done from each column can be dictated to individual students (struggling students focus on Columns A and B, gifte students focus on C and B, and average students do one activity from each column).
This package comes with a cover page, a page of instructions and further ideas, and one menu per page. Some of the activities on the menu do repeat in the later months, but never more than once. Each menu is unique and targets different skills, from figurative language to writing various text structures.
These choice boards are classroom-tested! My students' spelling skills have increased dramatically in only a few months. In the three spelling levels in my classroom, all but a few students have tested into the highest levels, and all have increased their original scores! The students enjoy the challenge of the choice boards, but also the ability to set their own assignments.
