Product Description
Lake Learning presents Monthly Spelling Post-Assessments

Directions for each monthly page

#1-5: These are our W.O.W. words (a.k.a Words of the Week). The students take a pre-assessment of these 5 words on Monday. Throughout the week, students are engaged in hands-on spelling practice. Much of this practice happens independently during the Word Work Station in our Daily 5 Literacy time . (These 5 W.O.W. words are selected each week from the Dolch list. )


Transfer Words: To help the students transfer their knowledge of these words into their writing and reading, we write 2-3 “Transfer Words” on our post-assessment. To help assist in the connection, we say something like,
“Look at the words you know how to spell. Which one would help you spell ________ (fill in the blank with a word that rhymes & has the same spelling pattern as one of the W.O.W. words). By the first star, write the word ________.” For instance, if “just” is one of the W.O.W. words, “must” or “dust” could be used as a transfer word.


Sentence Dictation: Another strategy we use to help students
transfer their W.O.W. words into their writing is to dictate a sentence that is composed primarily of current and previously studied W.O.W. words. The students listen to the sentence, echo the sentence, and then write it.


Bonus Words: For those students who spelled all of the W.O.W. words correctly on the pre-assessment, they get to choose 3
“Bonus Words” to practice throughout the week. I frequently work closely with the students to help them select words that they often misspell in their personal writing. Sometimes, the students select words that they’ve always wanted to know how to spell. Both of these techniques help to make this a relevant, meaningful, and enriching task.
