Stretch It Out Like Bubblegum is a strategy to help students to learn to write words they need to spell in their writing!
I am so excited to have this resource ready! My students LOVE pretending to stretch out bubblegum from their mouth and stretch a word at the same time, to help them spell it.
Teaching students to 'stretch it out like bubblegum' is a great fun way to help them understand the process of
1. saying a word
2. 'stretching' the sounds out as they say the word again
3. listening for the sounds
4. writing them down in order as they heard them
This packet includes:
3 Strategy Poster Variations (2 skin tone choices)
These will help you introduce and display the strategy in the classroom, so your students remember to use it!
'Stretch it Out' Word Mats for learning centers
Students use these mats to build (magnetic letters on a cookie sheet) or write (dry erase marker) various words
Use with the Word Mats in centers or whole group lesson. We have included cvc, ccvc and cvcc picture cards - 50 in total. You can use this activity with ANY picture cards you have!
Have A Try Spelling Book
Students "Stretch it Out Like Bubblegum" to try to spell words in their writing activities and record it in their little books. Teachers correct their attempt to help them learn correct spellings and reward their independent attempts.
