New to Second. Lots of misspellings! Advice, pls

Hi.
I'm new to second this year. When my students write sentences of their own, there are tons of misspellings. I encourage them to write the words as they sound and we haven't gotten too far into the idea of editing our work.

Probably parents are wondering why I haven't corrected the children's' spelling and I know enough to tell them sounding out words is an important step in the process but I wonder myself just how to handle this. I thought I might give each student a personal dictionary (nothing fancy, just lined sheets stapled in a file folder, one sheet per letter) and have them write any words they misspell and practice those words during independent work during reading groups.

I don't know. Anyone have advice for me? Any links would be appreciated!
