I wanted show you a fun, engaging, new way I am teaching spelling this year!
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the old traditional ways of teaching spelling, where all the students in the room memorize the same 20 words each week.
There is no differentiation in learning with this method.
What if students already know how to spell all 20 words?
Or what if the words are just too challenging?
In either situation, no real new learning will occur all week!
But, there is a way to teach spelling in a way that every student will be challenged at his/her own level! And the focus will be on studying patterns, not memorizing a list of words. Let me show you how by going over the 5 days of instruction in this spelling process:
Day One: Whole Group Lesson and Choosing Spelling Words
Step One: Teach a spelling or word study skill in a mini lesson format to the entire class. During the lesson, the students will help in making a list of words that follow the particular spelling pattern for the week.
Day Two: Review and Independent Practice
Day Three: Reflection of New Learning
Day Four: Partner Reteaching, Tips, and Practice Test
Day Five: Partner Spelling Test, What’s Next…?
