This is part of the Spelling Task Cards GROWING BUNDLE ! which is now complete with 25 sets (possibly more because 2 more sets are on the drawing board). Each set is sold separately for $3.50; that would be $87.50 for all 25 sets. They are $32 for all 25 or $12.00 in bundles of 5.

I have my students to thank for their input on these cards. My language learners needed pictures, yet my advanced students needed critical thinking. These cards range from ‘right there’ answers to analogies and word relationships.
These cards are so versatile. I pull out the sentence cards and use them as a quick bell work (bell ringer) activity. Some weeks I put them into centers with my Daily 5 rotations. Sometimes I set them all over the room and have students alternate between silent work and partner work, wandering from desk to desk at their own pace while I work one on one with students. I’ve laminated the response sheet on yellow paper so they can keep it with them for the week, then clean it on Friday.
Some of the puzzles we do together to show the reasoning. For example, WORDLE (like BOGGLE) counts every variation of the word as another answer so “pal, pals, pale, pales and paled” count as 5 words. (How many of you just thought, “You could spell ‘ale’ and ‘ales’ too!”?) The puzzles also work well as 5 minute brain breaks.
These cards use word lists from Wonders, Journeys, Storytown and Reading Street.
Word lists are included.
Each Set of 40 Includes these activities based on the same pattern
• Word lists are mostly based on 3rd grade spelling lists, but also some 2nd grade (Reading Street) and 4th grade (Storytown) as the pattern fits
• Support cards (words for analogies, sentences, or puzzles)
• Blank cards and “My List” cards for you to modify as you’d like.
• 8 picture cards (in color and print friendly)
• 8 analogy cards to increase critical thinking
• 8 multiple choice sentence cards – motivated by my students taking DAZE tests
• 8 sentence correction cards
• 8 Puzzle cards including: Ladder, mix and match, monster muncher, jumbled words, cloze read, synonym/antonym, word shapes, word sorts, boggle, 9-wheel, maze, ABC order, and more.
• Permanent puzzle: Every set contains a 9-wheel puzzle. I use this mystery 9-letter word as a bonus word on the spelling test each week.
• Maze cards: I’ve also found the maze to be a favorite, so each set includes a maze. Some students couldn’t follow the maze words unless they wrote on the card, so I’ve included an extra set of print-friendly maze pages, 4 to a page. I just print 7 copies of this page for each student to have their own.
