Yesterday you were given the first spellings to learn, the Learner Profile. Today I had the pleasure of reading some great sentences that used the words in context. Homework tonight is to choose one of the other spelling activities. Tomorrow and Thursday you should choose to do two other activities. The spelling books will be collected on Friday after the spelling test and I will be checking to see if you have done all of the activities. Here are the directions for spellings that we stuck in the front of your books.

Spelling Practice Exercises

1. Write sentences with your spelling words. Be sure to use the words in content, so that you show your knowledge of the word’s meaning. Underline the spelling word in each sentence. (This is Monday's activity).

2. Write each of your spelling words in a list. Beside each word, write as many words as you can using the letters in your spelling word. Example: Friend: fin, end, red, if, fir, fire.

3. Go to the website http://puzzlemaker.school.discovery.com Use the pull down menu and choose word search puzzle or criss-cross puzzle and make a puzzle with your spelling words. Print it out and solve your puzzle. Cut it out and stick this into your spelling books

4. Write your spelling words 5 times each. Write the vowels in one color and the consonants in another.

5. Sort your words into categories of your choice. Some examples of categories: vowel sounds, spelling patterns, parts of speech.

6. Write each of your spelling words in a list. Beside each word, write as many words as you can that have the same base word or a similar root. Example: Friend - friendly, friendship, friendliness
