This step by step classroom guide explains how to implement a differentiated spelling program based on the top high-frequency words used in writing. Students create lists based on their individualized "problem" words. Instructions, record sheets, treasure tokens and reward certificates are all included. As a bonus, there are "fridge post" pages with 25 ideas for practicing the words at home. This word work bundle can also be used with the Daily 5 teaching model. This system works fabulously in my classroom! It's fun, easy to implement, and based on individual spelling needs. If you want kids to make the connection and transfer their spelling skills to their writing, then this spelling/word work program makes a difference!
