Hi and welcome to another week of Optimum Organization!! Elizabeth and I have so enjoyed reading everyone’s ideas and we hope you have as well!
This week, I would like to share how I organize something that can get a little complicated…or at least messy.
Differentiated spelling tests.
During any given year I can have between 3 and 4 different spelling lists going at once. And things can get a little hectic when it comes to Friday’s testing and grading.
However, thanks to a multitude of technology resources, it isn’t so bad anymore!
Here’s my system (please click on any of the green links for more information and files to share)…
1. I put all spelling lists on Spelling City.
I don’t really know where I’d be without Spelling City! This year I splurged and purchased the full license, allowing my students to access the vocabulary games and…
to test out as well!
Oh wait, that’s step two…
2. Students take their tests on their device (we are a BYOD school).
Which means all of my students, regardless of their spelling list, can take the test at the same time. Not only does this save us tons of instructional time, but it also gives my students an instant score.
