This product contains 48 unique spelling tasks. These homework sheets are designed to be sent home at the beginning of the week and returned on a Friday (at least that’s how I use them!). Children choose one activity from each column, or season, for a total of 4 completed tasks for the week. I reuse these Homework Menus since the variety of activities is extensive.
Under the menu, there is a space for a parent/carer to sign to confirm that the activities have been completed, as some are not tangible products to be brought back to class to be marked. There is a also a section for the child to self-check that they have completed all the tasks required.
Each column has different types of activities. Summer includes activities that require you to copy out the spelling words, like rainbow writing. Autumn has tasks that require family participation, like finding words in the word search the child has made. Winter has a selection of activities that do not require a tangible product to be brought back to school, like writing the words on a parent’s back. Finally, Spring includes tasks that require some thinking, like writing a letter to a friend that includes all the spelling words.
