This Zip file includes instructions and printables for a home-work or literacy centers spelling program, using your own spelling word list. Differentiation is possible with this activity, as the students add their own spelling words to their choice board template - I currently have 3 spelling groups at different levels using the same template and rubric.
I am using this spelling program as a part of my weekly homework expectations to enhance spelling beyond the lessons completed in class. The kids have a spelling folder in which they keep the instructions, their spelling choice board, and their completed work throughout the week. Our school is a Leader in Me School based on Sean Covey’s 7 Habits for Happy Kids, so within the instructions are some phrases and vocabulary that matched these habits. This Choice board can also be used as a part of Daily 5, writing or literacy centers, or regular language arts classes.
Included in this Zip file are PDF copies of the instructions and the choice board (with or without a rubric), as well as Word document and Powerpoint files if you would like to make any modifications. If you are using the files that can be modified, and would like to keep the fonts seen in the PDF files, simply DOWNLOAD and INSTALL the following fonts:
• SF Beaverton
• Circulate BRK
I downloaded these fonts by opening Google, typing in the name of the font followed by the word “font”, and downloading from www.1001fonts.com. Be sure to also open the file and click install once it is downloaded. Once installed, the fonts should look just the same in Word or Powerpoint.
Please leave me feedback and let me know what you think!
