I wanted to share a cute little craft that one of my students, Aiden, brought in for homework one Friday. Every Thursday is 'Cool Spelling' night and our students are encouraged to create something out of the norm for spelling.
See how simple, but oh so creative? This could be a really good spelling center activity, too. We could make the color of the strips categorize the spelling word family (e.g. orange strips for the ag family, yellow strips for the an family, brown strips for the am family). I am pretty proud of him and his mom....they work together well.
Oh, and did I mention that they make brownies and do the spelling words on top of the icing for homework, too? Love those days!!!
Another way this could be used is by choosing a number and then having the kids write an equation that equals that number on the strips. There are millions of ways that this could be used!
I hope you can use this idea!
