I am thrilled at how versatile these activities are. You can assign these activities as a daily routine or you can make them available to students who finish their center activities early. You can also utilize this resource in your Substitute Teacher Plans to keep your curriculum going in your absence.
Once you have the materials prepped, your students can visit each center and practice/reinforce ANY spelling and phonics pattern they are studying in your classroom. These activities are low-maintenance and support any spelling pattern. Win!
I must also mention, these center activities are perfect for differentiated Spelling lists (I use Words Their Way). Differentiating your Spelling lists can be a daunting task. These activities will not only support your curriculum but they will make your life easier! To learn more about how to simplify your differentiated Word Study and Spelling program visit HERE
