I decided to join the Friday Freebie bandwagon! I created a Spelling practice Tic Tac Toe board for my students to use during Tier 2. Now when I say I created it, I mean I typed it but there is not an original idea on it! I borrowed ideas from several sources after googling "spelling practice." I picked simple ideas and as the year progresses I'll change the board and expand the ways they can practice. I have 2 versions. The first version has keyboarding practice without a computer. When we discard old computers, I keep the keyboards. I cut off the cords and use them for keyboarding and spelling practice. The kids don't care that they are not connected to a computer (I have gotten a few funny looks from visitors though when they walk in and the kids are using them!). So the first version (click on the pic below) includes keyboarding with no computer.
If you'd like to have your kids practice their spelling words on a computer click here for version 2. If you like the Word document to customize yourself, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it to you.
