If you're like me, you've grown tired of the same old word work activities (and your class probably has too.) To get us out of our word-work-rut, I created these 5 engaging word work activities to be used with weekly spelling lists! Each activity has a directions poster and a recording sheet that can be copied and laminated or put into a sheet protector. I have my class use dry erase markers and erase the recording sheets before putting them away. This saves paper and we end up with much less clutter at the end of the day!
Here are the activities included in this pack:
1- How much is your word worth? (Applies a coin value to each letter of the alphabet. Students determine the "worth" of their word by adding up all the coin values for each letter.)
2- Word Sort (Your basic word sort, but saves paper and keeps sorting organized.)
3- Sign Language Spelling (Includes an American Sign Language alphabet for kids to use to spell their words in sign language)
4- Area and Perimeter Spelling (Words are written in the unit squares and outlined. Then, you can find the area and perimeter of each of the words.)
5- Look, Say, Cover, Spell (another classic, but provides an organized space and template to use when practicing)
