My students LOVE word work, however I struggle to manage what choices they make during this time. Using this pack, you can now easily manage word word with VERY little prep. Heelllooooo sanity-saver. Here's how!
Use the focus area cards to document skills students need to practice. Place a sticker on the 'keep practicing' area to let students know which color/skill they are working on (i quickly do this while conferring). Pick around 3-4 areas to work on at a time. Now students can find activities that meet their individual needs while allowing for student choice (can you say highly effective???)
Label activities by skill (don't over-think it).
Print and place the 4x6 anchor charts in plastic picture frames. Student use these to help during word work.
As students master more skills, they can work in different areas indicated by the stickers on their focus area cards.
