PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I don't know about you, but I can't get away with the arts-and-crafts style spelling or word-work centers in my school. The buzz word is rigor, and that means that every single activity my kids do must be meaningful and thought-provoking. I came up with this "Roll Your Words" center as an easily facilitated, routine spelling activity that could be regularly used with any words (read: Time Saver!) AND keep my administration happy. :)

Roll Your Words:
This center includes five spelling practice activities that are more rigorous than your average spelling centers.

What you WON'T see: Writing words in three colors, Word Pyramids, or ABC order..

What you WILL see:
Categories; Definition Design; Math Mission; Synonyms, Antonyms, and Examples; Who Am I? Riddles; and Facts and Opinions.

On the second sheet, I have created a "How to Write Your Answers" model so that the kids have a reference point when recording their answers in their Word Work journals (Otherwise, you know, you will get some pretty sloppy/crazy/illegible work!)

There is a color and a {mostly} black-and-white option.

You can use this activity as an independent center activity, or incorporate it as a weekly whole-group routine. You could roll the die each Tuesday and Thursday and have kids break into partners to complete the activity selected. The sky is the limit!

I am using this with my fourth grade students, so I am targeting it as 3-5.

Enjoy!
