Today I changed up our spelling activity. This is the 3rd spelling week of school - the past 2 we have sorted the patterns in our spelling spiral notebook. Because it is a short week, I decided to combine some spelling activities this week and pulled these sorts out for my class to do full group.
They worked with a partner, cutting the sorts, gluing them onto the paper (front and back), then cutting out our spelling patterns, and identifying them.
Usually on Mondays we sort the patterns, then take a little practice test as they write the words in their agendas. After the practice test, they check over their words, and practice writing them in cursive. In past years I put these sorts into a workshop/Word Work station - but we just aren't there yet.
What spelling activities do you complete at school in your intermediate classrooms?
