So, as I mentioned last week, we are using Word Wizards (just a fun new name for my looping students so I don’t get too boring!) and we are using it for our differentiated spelling lists and word collection (you can read more by clicking on the green link above). This has been very popular with the students already–I will be sharing more about that soon! 🙂
Back to Word Detectives! Last year, I shared some smaller-sized books that were like a half-page big. I wanted to share another option, in case you would prefer a full-page book for your students. Plus, like I’ve said, I’ve been a teeny bit frame-obsessed this summer! Is it bad to admit that I made this cover while I was away on vacation this summer?! Separation from my Mac is hard!
The cover can be seen above…
The top line is for the focus of the week (such as -ing) and the examples are the words found by the students in their reading during the week.
In the meantime…how is everything going for you so far?? I would love to hear how your year has been!
