The spelling activities are part of a spelling learning center planned around The Three-Story Intellect and are designed to encourage your students to use higher order thinking. The center acknowledges the different ways students learn and provides a variety of activities to motivate your students.

The three-story intellect recognizes three different levels of thinking including:

  • Gathering information
  • Processing information, and
  • Applying information

The center is best implemented with a bi-weekly spelling program and is appropriate to use with any list of spelling words. Each spelling activity in the center is classified into one of the levels. Students are required to complete a different leveled activity each day. Students can use the printable cards and complete the activities in writing or in a spelling notebook. You can also assign the digital Google Slides version for students to complete using a computer or tablet.  

The pack also includes spelling contracts for your students. These spelling contracts inform the students of the activity they are required to complete for each day. The contract also lists three personal challenge tasks. These are more detailed tasks that students need to finish for each spelling list.
