As a fun alternative to the typical teacher-dictated Spelling test, and to give my voice a break, I audio-recorded the spelling tests each week. These files include:
* words – the list of BJU Press 20 words dictated with a 20-second pause in between
* dictation – two sentences BJU Press recommends; students listen to twice then write from memory
* ck – the correct spelling of each word for students to correct their own papers
This method has many advantages: gives the teacher a break; make-up work is a breeze; students enjoy the variety; keeps the lesson flowing quickly but not rushed.
I hope you enjoy! Let me know how you use this resource in your class.
