Use these weekly checks to see if your students are grasping the concepts of grammar, vocabulary, spelling and phonics.It includes a word of the week and dictionary skills. A great mix of questions (students have to come up with their own answer/choose from given answers)
These will spiral back ALL year long, so students will have to continue practicing concepts for the entire year.
Included: Outline of concepts taught in order for the year
Outline of skills reviewed on each sheet
4 W.O.W sheets for Month 1
It is aligned for 3rd grade but could be used in 2nd or 4th as well.
Are your students like mine? You do multiple mini-lessons, practice a skill whole group, small group, and individually and still have problems assessing who really has it down. Or it seems like a student knows it and then it flops in their independent work?
My students seemed to participate well and be on task practicing these skills in Daily 5/Centers independent work. However, not all grasped the basic skills of the week by the end and before we move on. Grading on our standards based report card was also difficult with these concepts.
For years now, my team and I have been using Journeys as our scope and sequence for teaching grammar, vocabulary, spelling, phonics, etc. It wasn't working quite right so this year we are using Journeys as more of a resource, and teaching these concepts in an order that makes more sense with building one idea upon another. Included in this resource is the outline of the order we'll be teaching concepts this year.
