This is a interactive spelling notebook that focuses on a new word family each week (-ug, -at, -an, etc.). I use this apart of literacy centers, as there is a new spelling piece to work on each day.
As a class, we brainstorm the words that they come up with that end with our word family of the week. We then sort them into small, medium, and big words. They copy down the words into the first page of their book. The next day, they pick four of those words to focus on as their spelling words of the week. They can practice writing the word without looking. The following day, they use their spelling word in a sentence, and draw a correlating picture for that word. On the few days, we practice the same four spelling words that they have been working on all week and use them in a hands on way. These pages are not included in the book, as they are interactive and hands-ob. Some activities that I use are letter magnets, pipe cleaners and alphabet beads, forming words using play-dough etc. After the week is done, we start a new word family of the week and the cycle continues.
