NOW Spelling! contains activites for your students to practice their spelling during an independent literacy center or for homework - whichever might suit your classroom needs best! Using a music CD format, your students will enjoy being the "music artist" and listen to "song tracks" by completing 5 spelling activites before their next spelling test. With different learning styles in mind, this center allows students the freedom to choose how they wish to practice their spelling.
I have provided the following:
-NOW Spelling! center label and folder labels (pg. 3)
-student tracking sheets in color and black & white (pgs. 4-6 to be printed double-sided)
-Secret Code Spelling direction cards (pg. 7)
-Word Cost direction cards in 2 formats (pgs. 8 & 9)
-Invisible Man direction cards (pg. 11)
-Spelling Dot-to-Dot direction cards (pg. 11)
-Spelling Dot-to-Dot student activity sheet (pg. 12)
-Spelling Crossword student activity sheet (pg. 13)
To complete your center, simply print off the direction cards on cardstock, cut, and laminate and print off the activity sheets with enough for each student in your classroom. Place the items in labeled folders using the labels provided. Finally, place the items in a basket along with the following items:
-magazines to be cut up
-scissors and glue
-Wikki Stix (strips of yarn can be used instead)
-whiteboard and marker
I hope this center allows your students' spelling practice to be enjoyable, as well as go smoothly!
