Start Your Engines by Annie Sauriol
Students “race” (not literally) using a Choice Menu (with different key “values”). Students will be working hands-on with ANY spelling/word list, recording and “racing” to the finish!
Included in this file:
-Choice Menu with 12 (reusable) tasks of varying difficulty
-Tracking Sheet for Students
-Awards for being a “Word Champion”
I use this as a work station during literacy centers and a “go to activity” when children have finished other work. The great thing, as with any Choice Menu, is this can be used over and over with different words associated with the tasks.
My students seem to really enjoy this menu and I have seen enthusiasm when able to choose what they can do with word lists!
