THIS IS PERFECT FOR GOOGLE CLASSROOM AND 1:1 CLASSROOMS.
Ever wondered how you could spice up your spelling homework and add a digital twist to it? I know I did. I was not sure how I could get my students to practice spelling their words so they could be prepared for the spelling test, and that was when I got an idea and created these assignments.
This spelling homework bundle will give your students the chance to practice spelling their words and have fun while doing so. I have included 9 different spelling homework activities. One of the assignments, Part 1: Write Out Words, is something that I require my students to complete each time they have spelling homework, which is every two weeks - they have vocabulary in between. Then, they choose 2 out of the other 8 assignments to complete (Part 2 of the homework grade). They must complete two different assignments each week they have spelling homework. After they have completed all 8, they can cycle through them again. To help keep track of who has completed what in each cycle, I have also created and included a spreadsheet. All you have to do is put in your students’ names and check off each assignment.
Here is a list and description of all the assignments included in this bundle:
- Part 1: Write Out Words (students write out their words in alphabetical order)
- Part 2: Circle Words (students write out their words 3x each in different colored circles)
- Part 2: Paint Chip Practice (students write out their spelling words on digital paint chips)
- Part 2: Rainbow Spelling (students write out their spelling words in different colors)
- Part 2: Scrabble Spelling (students play Scrabble using their spelling words)
- Part 2: Story Time (students use spelling words to create whatever kind of story they can come up with)
- Part 2: Superhero Story (students use spelling words to create a story about a superhero)
- Part 2: Texting Conversation (students create a texting conversation using their spelling words)
- Part 2: Words Backwards (so they can literally know how to spell the words forwards and backwards)
On top of all this, you get a spreadsheet to help keep track of who has completed which assignments.
I have included a detailed explanation of how to easily assign, grade, and reassign these activities. Each assignment is created through Google Docs. The spreadsheet is created through Google Sheets. After downloading and reading my explanation, you will be prompted to make a copy of each assignment and the spreadsheet. This will automatically add each assignment and spreadsheet to your Google Drive, which will allow you to alter them as needed.
