This packet includes eight tic tac toe homework sheets. Each sheet is designed to be used throughout the course of a week for the students to choose a word work activity from a menu of choices using their spelling words or word sorts. Each of the sheets includes the same exact activities, but they are mixed up so that students aren't picking the same row of activities to do each week. This format encourages students to experiment with all of the activities.
I use this with Words Their Way in my classroom, but these activities can be applied to any word study or spelling program! As homework or as an in-class center!
This resource is also especially useful for sub plans. When you have a substitute, you can set up this tic-tac-toe board as a center and have students practice their spelling, word study or even their sight words.
This is how this is used in my classroom:
Monday- new spelling / word study words + new tic tac toe sheet handed out. Students have to do one box for homework that night in their word study journals.
Tuesday- Students do a second acitivity box with their spelling words. They need to get one whole row of activities completed to win tic tac toe. So they need to do the second activity in the same row, column or diagonal row as the first activity they chose to do on Monday night.
Wednesday- A third activity box is completed
Thursday- The fourth and final activity box in the student's chosen row is completed. If you are doing word study with Words Their Way or Word Journeys, this is also the night that I require students to sort and glue their sorts in.
In the file, the activities are listed along with a description on how to do each activity so that students can independently complete each activity.
