I have spent so much time trying to make a useful center during my literacy rotations, where my students can practice their word study/spelling words in a beneficial way. This choice board means they can independently do their word study every day...and by Friday, I check to make sure they have gathered "10 points". That's it. All they need by Friday is 10 points worth of activities. Easier activities count for less points, more thorough actiivities count for more. Whichever way they choose, they must have gathered the 10 to get an A for the week in my gradebook. It really helps with the management and ensuring work is getting done in their journal every day. As teachers there is so much to check ALL the time...this makes it so easy! Enjoy!
