Welcome to Wonderful Word Work! With this series, you can teach spelling within the framework of the Word Work part of your Daily 5 or center time. Once children learn the activity formats, this is work they’ll be able to do independently. Simply introduce the activity for the day before beginning your rotations. If you wish, each set of words—with and without doubling and suffixes—can be used in a weekly spelling test. Word sets are selected specifically to teach spelling rules, creating great spellers and writers!
Activity 1: Changing the y to i before adding es
Activity 2: Reverse the Rule
Activity 3: Word Hunt
Activity 4: The Shape of a Word
