I get asked all the time about my spelling notebooks and how they are set up, SO….
I decided to put together this blog post, with helpful FREEBIES that will guide you through setting up and improving your spelling notebooks!
SMART TIP: Teach a mini lesson to your class about the purpose and value of spelling notebooks so that they can understand why notebooks are so valuable. I've included a detailed lesson for FREE if you choose to download the free printables for extra support.
SMART TIP: You only need a one subject notebook for each student. That should last all year.
SMART TIP: When you head out to purchase your tabs, be sure to grab the Post-It Durable Tabs. They will stick all year!
SMART TIP: You can fit two lessons on one page, and all the spelling learning can be used week after week.
SMART TIP: Students add words to the ‘spelling words' section that they get incorrect on spelling tests each week.
SMART TIP: Students integrate writing into spelling by adding words they commonly misspell in writing into the ‘words from writing' section. These words can be added to any weekly test.
SMART TIP: Students integrate reading into spelling by adding words to the ‘words I like' section that they find interesting and wants to learn to spell.
