This is a short story I wrote for a student who took the Primary Spelling Inventory and was having difficulty with long vowel and other vowel spellings. It uses eleven long/other vowel words and then too/to/two.
I first read the story to the student out loud before handing them a copy of the story. Then I gave him the story, explained that he would have to read the story and fill in the blank with the correct spelling out of the two choices that were given. This allowed him to visualize, hear and write out the word. If he required assistance, I helped him by reading the word or sentence again. Afterwards, I reviewed any mistakes and sent him home with the story so he could reread it if he wanted to.
