The Spell-it Log is a simple tool that is used with your existing spelling/word study/phonics curriculum to assist students in creating a self-extending spelling system. Students independently choose a word or two during writing (writer's workshop, etc.)that they identlify as valuable to learn. Students attempt the word and then utilize peers, resources in the room, and the teacher to identify key features and learn the word. Spell-it Logs not only encourage independent learning, but are also an excellent informal assessment of spelling. Educreate swears by it!
