Students use this spelling packet for the whole month. Each week they complete various spelling practice activities including writing words in sentences. They do one page each night Monday through Thursday. Then they have their parents sign in the box at the end of the forth day to indicate they have checked their child's work. Students return the packet every Friday for credit. Teacher then passes it back on Monday for the next week. The packet gives students a structure to follow and avoids the pitfall of them choosing the same free choice activities over and over again. It also has the advantage of only needing to be printed and put together once a month. You can also add your own cover page with directions or notes to parents.
