Tired of the same old spelling homework ...ABC order and sentences? Then look no further! Contained in this packet are 24 spelling contracts with 112 spelling options as well as task cards containing each of the spelling contract activities. The first 12 contract pages have no months indicated, while the last 12 contracts have months included on the them. There are also individual task cards that can be used as early finisher work or workstations/ centers. A log is attached for student accountability.
I have use spelling contracts for both homework and workstations both for an without grades. Students are given one week to earn a certain value of points, based upon their skill level (I usually set a point value of 30 or allow them to choose their own based upon classroom incentives.). This product can also be adapted into a math or spelling workstation by laminating contracts, using a permanent marker to indicate point values and a due date, and placing them in either a plastic file folder or clear sheet protector adhered to a wall or cabinet door. You may also laminate the spelling task cards and use the log as a record.
The activities on the contract that take longer and require more application and critical thinking are worth 10 – 15 points. The activities focusing on lower levels of Bloom’s are worth 5 points. One option the students really enjoy is Telephone Math. I’ve included a picture of the telephone math along with ways in which I use it. The larger wall hanging template is also available at my store for purchase. I keep it up all year and place my spelling words in a pocket chart right next to the telephone math poster.
Thanks so much for viewing my product. In my 10+ years of experience using these contracts, student spelling application increases drastically. Should you have any questions regarding this product, email me at: rockin’firstname.lastname@example.org.
