I’ve done spelling in tons and tons of ways, including spelling contracts and elaborate practice sheets. This year I’m keeping it simple. My students have 10 spelling words – the first 5 are sight words and the second 5 are word family words. Each week, in the “Spelling” center, they write their words 3 times, and then they “Rainbow Write” their words by tracing over their words in as many colors as possible with crayons. I have created a simple sheet for them, it’s nothing fancy, but I thought others might like it, so, I uploaded it into Google Docs so that you can grab it for FREE. Enjoy!
