word work activities

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hi! I have used D5 with third and fourth graders very successfully. Last year was my first year in first and D5 just fell apart on me. I was too nervous to trust that class to work independently and accomplish anything. As a result I was overwhelmed with worksheets to grade and my poor kiddos spent too much time doing busy work!
This year I am determined to make this model work!!
2 Questions- I have the book from 2006, is it worth it to buy the 2nd edition?
what types of word work activities do you suggest for 1st graders? I know my 3rd and 4th graders practiced spelling and word wall words with scrabble tiles, stamps and rainbow writing. that much I remember...
Thanks so much in advance for any help!!
