This spelling homework log accompanies a six-week unit study of beginning and ending sounds. I use this log in my first grade classroom to help blend contemporary "word study" with traditional "spelling homework." Parents are encouraged to help their students learn phonics patterns instead of just memorizing words in an easy-to-read introduction letter. Each week of homework contains a list of 10 spelling words that are taken from Words their Way sorts and daily activities. The matching sorts from Words their Way are listed at the end of the book for your reference. I have also included a fill-in-the-blank CLOZE activity for each week of words that can be used as class work or homework for reinforcement.
This book could be appropriate for kindergarten, first, or second grade classes. Look for the other spelling units that I have created to help you differentiate for all of your students along the developmental continuum!
