On Monday, I send home the spelling list and at the bottom is a Mon-Friday checklist. They return the spelling checklist on Friday. They earn a sticker for each night they practice and parent initialed. The stickers go on a chart they keep in their desks. When they fill up a row, they get a candy prize. When they get the whole sticker chart fill up, they go to the prize box. This has really helped my students. Also, the parent may go to www.spellingcity.com
to practice lists. At the beginning of the year, I sent home a letter informing parents of different ways to practice at home-write spelling words with pudding, use magnetic letters, letter tiles, wikki sticks, etc. I hope this helps.
