Our teaching days are packed with reading, math and writing. Word work and spelling often gets short-shifted. Some days it completely gets thrown to the wayside. L.I.P.S. can help you fit spelling and pattern discovery into your busy day.
L.I.P.S. (Learn, Investigate and Practice Spelling) is a spelling/word work system that organizes the critical skill of spelling. Designed to fit into a 15 minute block, L.I.P.S. utilizes a composition notebook; a new is page added each day. The focus of the week is a spelling pattern and 5 words that fit the pattern.
The kids will:
* LEARN the spelling pattern
* INVESTIGATE the spelling pattern (2 days)
* PRACTICE the spelling pattern
* SPELL the words, and use what they have learned to spell 3 new words.
The short spelling list keeps students from becoming overwhelmed with long lists to memorize. A list of 5 gives the kids ample time to explore the pattern instead of just memorizing it.
* Editable notebook labels (color and bw) for student's notebooks
* Explanation on how to use L.I.P.S.
* Break down of each day's instruction or activities
* 5 days of printable comp notebook inserts
* Mini posters to match each day's insert for mini-lesson
* editable Word .doc with pages for day 1 and 2
This kit does not include spelling patterns or words. It is designed to fit the word study and spelling patterns in your classroom.
