These literacy quick fire 'do now' tasks are an excellent way to enable students to consolidate and practise their spelling and word knowledge. This pack includes three different word work activities: common misspellings, new vocabulary, and spelling correction. There are 20+ different tasks that your students can complete, giving you a whole semester of word work practise.
See the preview for a detailed view of the contents.
→ 7 sheets of common misspellings. Each sheet has 8 copies of the same task on to save your printing costs. Each task contains instructions for learning the 5 common spellings of the week.
→ A Doodle Notes page to accompany the common misspellings task. This can be used each work or to consolidate several weeks worth of learning (see preview)
→10 sheets of new vocabulary. I have specifically chosen words that are excellent for writing tasks but are outside of everyday use. Each sheet contains 8 copies of the same task. Each task contains instructions for learning the 2 new vocabulary words of the week.
→ A Doodle Notes page to accompany the new vocabulary task (see preview)
→ 5 spelling correction sheets to help develop proof-reading skills. Each sheet contains 8 copies of the same task. Each task contains instructions for spotting and correction the spelling errors contain.

2. Use as a bell-ringer or starter activity.
