Clip to ScrapBook #4

Not a huge fan but we have to use it. I feel it is more of a word recognition program and not a spelling program.

Day 1 we cut and try to sort. While one group is cutting and maybe trying to sort, I teach the other group the lesson. Then switch. More than two groups was a nightmare!

Day 2 they sort then write their words.

Day 3 is speed sort. I use my phone or iPad stopwatch and they sort as fast as they can. Then they buddy/blind sort. One partner reads the words and the other partner says where it goes. Then they switch.

day 5 they write sentences using the words.

Day 5 they sort and glue the words. ( whatever ones they have left and haven't lost on the floor, in their desks, etc.!)

I also send the word list home for spelling homework.
