Whenever we have 10 extra minutes in class, we practice some quick, no prep spelling together! Just project the slideshows onto any whiteboard or wall and let students follow along with their whiteboards!

Just 10 minutes each day can drastically improve students' understanding of spelling strategies and confidence in making guesses while they write. All you have to do is play the slideshow!

Each slideshow has 5 words in a row using the same spelling pattern to reinforce understanding and confidence. (About 10 minutes each).

This format is repetitive and predictable for students, so once they try the first few words, they will know what to expect and focus on the spelling patterns.

These skills are essential for emergent writers, and will help build confidence during writing tasks throughout the year.

You can see the preview by clicking the PREVIEW button near the top of this page. Please read the preview to see the details before purchasing to ensure these are right for your class.



Students will need a white board to write on.

Project the slideshow on any white board or wall.

The first slides will prompt students to FOCUS on the screen.


The colorful slideshow will prompt students to identify a simple picture (ie. bus, cat, etc.), say the word SLOWLY to identify the sounds, and make their best GUESS at spelling the word.


The slideshow then reveals the correct spelling, one letter at a time, so students can SELF-EDIT their work.


After spelling 5 words together, there are two "drag and drop spelling" activities to review all the words. With student input, the teacher drags words or letters to match pictures.


Each word slideshow also includes a SENTENCE using that word, so more advanced writers can copy (or extend!) the sentence along with the focus word for an extra challenge. (See photos in the preview.)

WHOLE CLASS LESSONS: These slideshows are quick and easy for whole class practice during whole group instruction. Students sit at the carpet or at tables with a white board or paper - my students also like spelling with their fingers on each other's backs!

INTERVENTION LESSONS: Looking for some no-prep spelling intervention? It's perfect for individual or small group intervention. Using a laptop at your table, call students over for a quick spelling intervention lesson using white boards or paper. No prepping or copies to make - it's all there on your computer at a moment's notice.

DISPLAY OPTIONS: I like to move the slideshow slides manually to control the timing and make sure everyone is ready, but it's also easy to play as a slideshow (ie: 5 seconds for each slide), which leaves you free to circulate and help students. I've included some simple picture instructions for how to make this work with just a few clicks!

You can also click the “record” button and save your slideshow as a movie!

Simple instructions for all options are included!
