I use this as an alternative to spelling tests. It is a way that I can have my students make connections using content vocabulary in context. Each week or so, I chose 5 content words from our interactive word wall. They are directed to write the five words down (using the word wall to correctly spell them), and then answer a theme based question by writing a detailed paragraph using all five words. We teach an integrated literacy at our school, so I mix science, social studies, and vocabulary words from our ELA texts in these activities.
